Kevin's Graduation

I’m ready to give up on decorating. Had so much trouble with the fondant on this one. After a few choice words and a little break, managed to put it together. I really have to remember that I have trouble every time I use this particular brand of marshmallows. Not happy with the finish at all but at least I know it will taste good. The bottom tier is strawberry cake filled with cheesecake (an actual cheesecake which is Kevin’s favorite) and chocolate smbc. Top is banana, filled with milk chocolate ganache and smbc. Hopefully my godson will like it. So proud of him for going back to school while holding a full time job and doing renovations in his house.

Please don’t give up on decorating!! We are our own worst critics! I think your fondant finish looks great, and I don’t see one little flaw in it! I’m sure your godson will absolutely love his cake. Well done!!

The cake looks great! Please don’t give up, we all have days like this. The most important thing is that you worked it through and the cake turned out great!

Thanks everyone. I am feeling a little down about this one. It ripped in a couple of places and I patched it up as best I could. Also changed the design a bit to hide the flaws. Hadn’t had this much trouble in awhile but I think it might be the marshmallows I used. Haven’t used this kind the last couple of cakes.

This cake is gorgeous!!! Your talent is very obvious!!!! Stick with it!!!! I find people who don’t like fondant don’t like marshmallow or store brought. So I save myself the grief of making marshmallow fondant. I now only use retailer fondant.:) Great cake talent:)
