My son asked for a cake that looks like pancakes. Challenge accepted!
The cake is 4-layers of 6″ cakes. The ‘pancakes’ are tinted marshmallow fondant ‘rings’ stacked around the cake. I tried to make the rings a little messy to look like odd-shaped pancakes. The top pancake is entirely fondant. I painted the pancakes with some brown gel (mixed with vodka) to give the pancakes dimension. The butter pats are yellow fondant. The syrup is tinted piping gel.
My son and his friends were impressed! It wasn’t too difficult to make so I was pleased, too!
