I made my first REAL cake. A two tier round chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and Michele Foster's fondant. I had a lot of problems covering the cakes since the ganache wouldn't harden (when i let it harden in the fridge, the fondant sweated and it tore in some places, not the fondant's fault, it was mine). I had to cover the 9" three times! I was exhausted. the third time was do or die since i didn't have anymore fondant left. so i just made it work. It ripped in some places but I just covered them up with decorations.

Also I didn't have a fondant smoother. *hits head against wall* so eventhough I watched sugarshack's flawless fondant DVD (which is awesome!) i still wasn't able to make it smooth. But i really like the end result. am quite proud of it. one of the guests at the party was a manager of a popular bakery here and he asked who made the cake (they don't do fondant, just faux fondant aka boiled icing) and I proudly said it was ME! icon_smile.gif

Anyway, i would like to thank everyone at CC for all the help. You guys rock and I wouldn't even have had the guts to try this cake if I hadn't learned a LOT from everyone here.

Now on to the picture spammage. icon_biggrin.gif (are the pictures showing up huge? i have resized them but they're showing up as really big on my computer. sorry!)
