🎼 You could be me when you look this clean 🎶

So I tried my hand at a fondant cake again.  “I refuse to be defeated!”  After watching a Jessica Harris Craftsy class for the sixth time, I felt confident to try and overcome my kryptonite.  For this baby boy shower cake the point here was to achieve sharp edges and not have any elephant skin(dried, cracking) on my fondant.  In order to do that I prepared my cake with a crumb coat and frosting of ganache.  Then I applied a light coat of shortening to the cake after the ganache was setup.  Now for the fondant,  I rolled it out and covered my cake making sure it was smooth with no air bubbles.  To get the sharp edges I used an acrylic plate on top of my cake and pushed my fondant up.  For the fondant bowtie I used a simple tutorial, let it dry then inserted it into the cake.  As for the Jessica Harris cake classes I would recommend them for any one who wants to take their cake skills to the next level.

How I made it mine:

 

Simply That!!😀
