I put this graduation cake together for the neighbor's middle school age daughter. This was my first time working with fondant, my classes haven't started yet but I did watch my Flawless Fondant DVD and I used some tips and the homemade marshmallow fondant recipe I found here. It was really pretty easy but very time consuming! I think the process will be much faster next time since I'll have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing.
Inspiration for the design of this cake was found at CakeCentral.com!
I was happy to have my big blue silicone mat. It made rolling out the fondant and covering the cake a little easier. Covering the cake with fondant was the trickiest part for me, I had Adam help me lift the blue mat and drop the fondant on, he did great!
