I made this cake for a 12-year-old's birthday. They wanted an Independence Day cake since she's born on July 4th. I see so many flaws, but they all liked it. This was my first fondant-covered cake. I used the premade Wilton fondant, and boy it doesn't taste good. Fortunately there's buttercream icing under it.
I'm going to lay off making more cakes until after my Wilton Class 1 in two weeks. I can't wait!
Oh, and cake decorating isn't very compatible with stitching. After messing with coloring paste, my hands were dyed first blue and then red. Fortunately it all mostly washed off after a while, but I was scared to touch my stitching this weekend (not that I had much time).
The next finishing piece for the Monthly Finishing Challenge is a scissor pocket. I have a chart of a scissor pocket, so I'm ready to stitch this time: Boo Keeper by Drawn Thread. I think I have a suitable piece of fabric for it.
