What are you most proud of? I'm glad it looks anything like the original ! The night I started I ran out of fondant and had to make my own so the fondant is not as nice as I would like. Typical me, I didn't practice, I went straight to the cake. I wish I had watched the coloring class a second time before I started but over all I'm happy with it for a first try. I'm going to add some pearls and lace to the cake then will see how the whole thing looks.

My fondant has a couple of issues but this is a fun technique to do. Any suggestions on where to find good patterns to use since I am not really an artist ? I don't think I can free hand anything nearly as nice...

you did a great job. you can use pages from colouring books or print off clipart or google images of what you'd like to paint on your cake.
