I had leftover fondant from McQueen, so I thought it would be fun to do another cake with it. Our family had a little party for several of us who have birthdays the last week of Feb/first week of March, so I made a cake!
I baked two round lemon cakes, chilled and frosted them.
Then I covered the cake in yellow fondant. Fondant is really pretty easy to put on a cake. Just roll it out in plenty of cornstarch and using the rolling pin, lay it on top of the cake. Pull it a little and smooth down the sides, working around the cake.
Cut off the excess fondant and viola!
I didn't have any flower cookie cutters, so I fashioned this funny looking flower out of floral wire. It doesn't look perfect, but it has the sort of cute whimsical look I was going for.
When I started cutting out flowers and laying them on, I realized that they look like flubber. Remember the movie?
