Well...This cake was..*ahem* a challenge. It was my first time working with MMF, my first time attempting a concept cake, my first time doing a stacked cake...all in all, I think I did a pretty good job.

Happy 4th!

That is an awesome looking cake if you havent done so already you should enter that into the 4th of July contest. If its a 1st time with fondant it looks like you have done it before. Keep up the outstanding work.

Thanks everyone for the awesome words. I took the cake to the party and you all were right, it was a hit. Especially amongst the kids. All the kids were wearing red white & Blues, so naturally, they wanted something to match their clothing..they all asked for the Red White and Blue cake. The grown ups loved it. My mom (whose favorite color is red, and favorite cake is chocolate) took half the chocolate top..LOL

Thanks again everyone! I have a birthday cake to do this weekend...YAY!!

Believe it or not, that is 1/2 oz of the Wiltons Red Red and 1/2 of the No Taste Red...While the color was beautiful, my mom says the fondant was still bitter tasting. Thanks for the compliments make me wanna strive higher icon_biggrin.gif
