another masterpiece completed

I finished my second big task for this week. I made a baby shower cake for a lady in my ward. Her shower is this Saturday but I wanted to make sure I got it done early so that I would still have time to pack for the beach.

I like how it turned out but there are still some things I need to keep practicing. My first batch of fondant didn't turn out so I had to do it again and that batch was too small so I had to make some changes to my original plan. Placing the fondant on the cake was tricky too, and it tore in some places. Luckily I had planned on cutting out the stars anyway so I just placed stars on those torn places. Now the trick is to get it to her house without ruining it. Wish me luck!

You are seriously SOOOO talented. I love the cake and absolutly wish I could be as creative as you when it comes to home decor! When we get a home you will have to come visit and help me because I am not a decorator, but would really love to be!
