I wanted something different for my little girl’s 2nd birthday. So I thought I’d try molding something. This ballerina is the first time I’ve ever molded a figure and I was pretty happy with the outcome. I was looking for simplicity but cute too. I saw this Ballerina Birthday Cake on Flicker and thought it was a good idea.

I made a chocolate cake with a Nutella and chocolate filling. I was nervous it wouldn’t turn out okay. The little ballerina is made out of fondant, I think I’ll try modeling chocolate the next time I mold something.
