I had no idea how this cake was going to work and it was my first cake using fondant. I cut the shape that looked okay but still wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Not knowing what to use for the scales I went to the hardware store and looked at everything possible I could use. Then I came across gutter screen, It worked out perfect!

After it was finished I placed the cake in a box with sides wrapped with chicken wire for a better effect. When displaying at the farmers market I lost quite a few customers! Even after I told them it was a cake they said “I DONT CARE” and stayed far away from my booth! LOL
