Birthday Creation  

It was my brother's 8th birthday and I made him a cake. But not an ordinary cake, a cake that looked like a present. It was my first attempt at decorating a cake with fondant which I made myself out of marshmallows and a ton of icing sugar. I made buttercream icing for the first time and it took me thirty minutes to make. I should've tested it before hand, because it tasted like buttery/sugary cream. It was gross. When I rolled out the fondant it gets sticky almost instantly and the recipe requires you to roll it out on cornflour, but the cornflour dries out the fondant. Obviously that's my fault because of my inexperience, but overall the effect looked wonderful. The taste on the other hand was something to be desired.
