first.

Hello! My name is Yen and my hobby is baking. This most likely sprung from my obsessiveness to detail, hence why many cooks hate baking. My very first cake would most likely have come out of a box, and I still use cake mixes. I am not ashamed, although i wish I could make cakes from scratch. Since this is my first blog, I thought it appropriate to also show my first fondant cake. I made this yesterday with a couple of my teammates from my youth group. There were four teams in total, and my team ended up in 2nd place. But this is overall, not just based on the cake. I made a two-layer strawberry cake. I frosted the cake with buttercreme frosting, all of which was is store bought/box mix.(Sorry for the bad quality, I didn't have a camera on me, so I had to make due with my iphone.) Here is our cake:



The theme was the four elements and my team was wind. I made all the figurines out of marshmallow fondants as well as as WIND. I then piped the names and outlined WIND with frosting. Then for extra color, I "sprinkled" sprinkles on the sides.


Here's a better picture of the fondant figures. I let them choose what kid of head ware they wanted. I have the beehive since I'm the leader as well as the oldest.

It was a BLAST making the cake. I'll miss my team, since I won't be returning to my youth group next year. It was a fun run. I hope you enjoyed my first blog. This is something new. I'm always the one reading blogs, now I'm writing one. XOXO.
