Gift Cake

This Monday I had the second class in my Wilton III class. We had to bring in a square cake to cover in fondant.

It was the first time I worked with fondant (we had to use the Wilton Fondant), and I was nervous. My instructor was really helpful and walked me (and the other people in my class) through the process.

The only thing we had to do was cover the cake and make the bow. I decided to add the shaped flowers to make it a little more interesting.

Overall I'm super pleased with the results. I think the fondant tastes kind of gross (I much prefer the MMF I made for the Cupcake Electoral Map), but I just peeled it off and ate the chocolate cake and buttercream icing that were underneath.
