Hawaiian Cake

I attended a Bridal Shower and the theme was Hawaiian. The cake flavors are (bottom) Chocolate and (top) vanilla that looked like a rainbow. The chocolate cake was covered in white buttercream and the rainbow cake was covered in chocolate buttercream.The black flowers are made out of Black Fondant and the middle parts are pink fondant with silver balls.
The flowers that are on top of the cake are made out of gumpaste. I tinted pieces of gumpaste and rolled them together and then cut them out. The middle sections are pink fondant with silver balls.

First Fondant Cake

So i thought i'd post the first cake i made with Fondant. I had attempted to make home-made fondant which i will attempt to make again.

The cake was a vanilla and chocolcate cake, 2-tiered. It was a going away cake for a girlfriend who was moving to London, England.

Courses at Michaels

I've been taking courses at Michael's and I'm currently on the Fondant & Gum paste course.

the cake for tomorrow's class is going to be awesome. A co-worker found the coolest website and this person made a cake look like a rainbow. So i decided to take a crack at it and make my own version (different recipe) and make it for my class. I'll have to add pictures when it gets cut, I'm just currently icing it for tomorrow's class! I can't wait to taste it myself.

Rainbow Cake

I have to give kudos to a blog that a co-worker sent me. She made a cake that looked like a rainbow.

So i decided to attempt to do the same thing myself. I didn't follow her recipe but decided to make my own recipe. I used a White cake box mix and used an Extender from my Course 4 Teacher at Michaels. Here is a picture before i actually baked it.
