Playing With Fondant

After seeing the cake made for my mom's birthday, I thought I'd try my hand at fondant. I bought a box of Wilton's neon-colored fondant (pink, yellow, purple, and red) and decided to cover a cake with some cutters I recently bought from Michaels. The first mishal was that I didn't have enough red fondant to cover the cake. The second was realizing I shouldn't have used that much buttercream, and not putting it in the fridge to atleast harden before laying on the fondant! It was a learning experience, and I have to say, cutting and layering those multicolored daisies was fun! It reminded me of Playdoh..good times. Hopefully the next fondant experience will be better, but for now I think i'll stick to getting buttercream right!
