I Made a Cake

I used a Groupon and went to Sweet Wise to learn how to work magic with fondant.

A story in pictures:

You must start with a large clean area. And a tall stool. That is crucial:

You must also have surgical gloves and dye:

Then you grab a ball of putty and make it yellow:

When it's good and taffy-like, roll it out:

Next, take a nice picture that will show-off your freshly manicured hand and ring:

After that, you make little yellow thingys. Set them aside to dry:

Then you grab more putty stuff and make it into a purple blob:

Massage it; work it out. Roll it, but not too thin or thick:

Next, line up with your classmates to get a frozen cake:

Now this next part gets tricky. It apparently makes people cry. Frost the cake. If you start to cry, step away:

Carefully lay the fondant on the cake:

Make it look like an octopus:

Cut off the extra:

Add the dried yellow thingys. Hey, they make a bow!:

Add some curlie Q's (for effect):

Pack it up, and say goodbye to your friends:

I am now a certified 'fondant put-er on-er person.' Call me.
