Yummy Creations!

To celebrate National Candy Month, this weeks challenge is to make anything that involves something sweet.
Well, my youngest daughter has developed quite a passion for cake decorating. She bought the Cricut Cake Mini about a month ago and has been learning how to cut out fondant. When she made this cake for a coworker, I knew I wanted to use it for this challenge.

She started by rolling the fondant out on a pastry mat to a thickness of about 1/8th of an inch and cutting it to a rectangle to fit on the 12" x 6" mat. The speed is low the pressure is low - medium. The hair is from Everyday Paperdolls, the rest of the cowgirl is from Paper Doll Dressup, all layers cut at 4". The cake is a 2 layer, 10" frosted with white butter cream and piped with yellow butter cream. This is only her second attempt using the Cricut, but I see lots more cakes in her ( our ) future!

I was impressed with how easily she found the fondant to work with and the Cricut cut it beautifully. If you have ever thought about trying your hand at this yummy pastime I would say wholeheartedly - Go For It!!
