I'm planning to donate a cake for a charity auction held at the local food bank. For the live auction Cake should be more than $150.
I have been going through many cake photos to figure out what to make. This is my first auction.
So any tips/ ideas to make a successful cake? I thought of doing a carrot cake, and cream cheese filling. I have second thoughts about doing a fondant cake since people don't like fondant, but I make my own fondant. I'm scared people will not bid when they see fondant, but fondant makes the cake look beautiful.
