I made this first birthday cake for my son, it was my first try at fondant and I made my own marshmallow fondant (from an online recipe,very easy!).
I made two sheet cakes, cut the top in a “1” shape and covered with canned frosting and the fondant and made little fondant “pearls” for the outline (although they were not the best).
The cake itself was a simple box cake then I added an extra egg with the hopes to make it a little more firm. I then sprinkled with funfetti sprinkles, and positioned the candles with a bit of canned frosting. Was not too bad for my first try ever at fondant and a shaped cake!
