Let Him Eat Cake

The other day I realized that Derek never officially had a Birthday cake since we were out of town and in good wifely fashion I decided to whip something up...OK whip something up is an understatement I found out about the world of Fondant Cake Making! 
Now, because the cake was #1 my first attempt at Fondant and #2 the most time I have EVER spent on making a cake I felt it was blog worthy.

Happy be-lated Birthday Derek!




P.s Don't click to enlarge the image, it is like an impressionistic painting. From far away it is Ok but up close it is a big mess.

p.p.s You enlarged it anyway didn't you
