If it looks like CRAP it must taste GoOd!!!

So Kelby and I thought it might be fun to try some cake making/decorating.
We've never REALLY done something like this and thought it would be fun to do together.

The cake mix was easy but we decided to make our own fondant...not only had we never made it before but neither of us had ever even used it...
We tried two different kinds...the one above was not a good recipe.
the one below...was awesome! It was made with marshmallows! YUM!
It required a LOT of kneading and was pretty exhausting after a while.
We decided to make a four layer cake and it turned out perfect! However you will notice that our lovely round cake turned into a square. This is what happens when you fall asleep and forget to wrap the edges and they dry out...and you have to cut it...boo.
And then..more kneading! YAY!
Haha...now below is a picture of the final product. We had NO idea what we were doing...and it ended up looking like crap...HOWEVER...it was pretty much the best tasting cake ever. Seriously. It was. Can I have some more!?!?!
We asked a bunch of people if we could give them our cake after we designed it and Kelby's work friends won it. We want to decorate it but don't really want a TON of cake lying around.
All in all it wasn't a COMPLETE failure. We learned a lot of what-not-to-do's but that should make the next cake just a little bit better!

That is always the best way to learn anything try it yourself. It didn't turn out THAT bad. And besides, they didn't pay for it and went in knowing you were practicing. We enjoy doing projects and working together. I think it says a lot about your relationship if you are able to work together and not just play together.
