Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I colored the brown fondant with gel color and... CINNAMON! I created the ribbon tales way too far in advance and they kept cracking :( it is a colorful, two layer 8' inch cake with a fondant baby. The baby diaper was created using shaped rice crispy treats and covered with white Pettinice fondant (Pettinice tastes pretty good!)

What are you most proud of? My rookie skills!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice makes perfect! Fondant scared me at first, but these classes really touched on alllllllll of my pitfalls with fondant! That helps!
