(....shaking head in disbelief)
So we had many discussions about cakes and came up with a birthday party cake idea that was great!
I made one box of yellow cake mix up and baked it into 6 muffins and a deep, 6 inch round pan.
I cut the cake in half on the edge and iced the cut edge of both halves, and placed a layer of raspberry jam on the bottom layer, then stacked them. Ice thinly with butter cream icing.
Do the same with 2 of the cup cakes to make the stools.
Now THE FUN PART!!
Making rolled Fondant is a daunting task, UNLESS you make...
It's as easy as 1,2 ,3
- 8 ounces miniature marshmallows (4 cups not packed, or half of a 16-ounce bag)
- 2 tbsp water
- Food coloring or flavored extracts, optional (I used2 Tbsp of Raspberry Jello to make pink)
- 1 pound powdered sugar (4 cups), plus extra for dusting
It won't fully mix in the pot, so dump the contents out onto a icing sugar dusted surface and knead like bread until smooth and pliable.
Roll as thin as possible on a sugar dusted surface and cut out desired shapes. Or shape like play-dough to make edible figures. (My tea cups and plates are glass toys from the dollar store)
For my cake I cut out 3 circles, tracing around cups and dishes and rolled them even thinner. Then I laid them over my cake pieces and shaped them. To attach decorative items, add a dab of butter cream icing to the bottom of each piece.
