This Stars Birthday Cake was my first attempt at fondant and I made it for my son’s first birthday. I used 2 boxes white cake mix and 2 round 8 in pans. I dyed one layer blue and one layer green. I coated them in Wilton’s buttercream icing and using Wiltons fondant. I tried making MM fondant but it didn’t work out for some reason.

There are a lot of dents and tears in the fondant mainly because I rolled it out too thin and didn’t realize it until it was a little too late. I covered it with fondant at the last minute so I had no time to turn back and start over. I’m gonna attempt another cake when my other son turns 3 in October so hopefully it’ll go a little smoother than this attempt.

I don’t think its too bad considering it was my first try. But it makes me praise the people who actually make really detailed beautiful fondant cakes. I wanted to cry it was so difficult !
