This was my first cake ever! I have never used fondant before, and I have never even made a cake before. I had to rush this one and decorate it in less than an hour. I've never had any cake class, training, or anything. I just kind of winged it and hoped for the best! The fondant, name, numbers, balls, and flowers are marshmallow fondant that I made, and both tiers of cake are red velvet with butter cream icing. The colors of the fondant are more pastel in the pictures than in person. I cant wait to do this again!
