Hi everyone,
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jennifer. I am making my daughters first birthday cake for her party this weekend. This will be my first attempt ever to make a cake with fondant on top and homemade decorations. I hope to continue making cakes and will use this site as a wonderful tool to help me. Thank you for everyone that contributes to make this site the best!

And the best part of your daughter's cake will be that you made it yourself.

Thank you for the warm welcome icon_smile.gif
I am attaching 2 pics of my cakes. I made a small 6 inch cake for her birthday on Thursday and a 2 tiered 10 inc and 8 inch cake for her party on Saturday.
The 2 tiered gave me some problems,but I'm sure I'll learn how to correct them from this site icon_smile.gif

yes the tigger cake is my cake. That is my second time working with fondant as I made a 6 inch cake on the 30th for my daughters first birthday. The Winnie the Pooh cake was much harder though.

Fabulous work for your second time with fondant--you are a natural at cake decorating.
