I can finally stop obsessing over every little One Fish Two Fish thing out there in the internet bloggy world. It was getting bad... But in the end, my hard work paid off and I loved everything about Jack's party!
My first ever attempt at using fondant was a typical first attempt in my opinion. I was picturing my cake to look exactly like the one I was modeling it after. And well, I guess the cake had other plans. It wasn't so much perfect, but it tasted darn good! At least it looked like the Cat's Hat, no one was confused. I won't show you what it was supposed to look like. Just the wonderful job I did!
So I'm sure I've said this before, but I am not a baker. I am a cooker. The only cake I have ever made has been in sheet form, never layers. So the fact that there are 6 cakes on that baby is quite impressive for me. Pay no attention to the little nub on the top, that is not the dowel supporting the cake or anything... I gave up on a few details, like his name in blue fondant on top, the one fish cut out and letters, and the rest of the black wrinkles in the hat. Cake making is just not as easy as it seems on tv. Anyway, on to the rest of the stuff I didn't mess up at all...
