Little Roo's First birthday is coming up soon. While he was visiting we had a little birthday party for him. I love making my grand children's birthday cakes. My daughter has wanted to make it a tradition to make the birthday cakes for her children. I thought that was a fantastic idea so we decided she would make Little Roo's first birthday cake with only technical advice from grandma.
She started with three layers. We then decided to remove one layer as it seemed a little on the tall side.
Next my daughter rolled out white fondant and draped it gently over the cake.
press the fondant to the sides of the cake starting at the top and slowly working down. Ease the folds and wrinkle out as you move down. Trim off the excess.
She then added cut out fondant pieces by wetting the back of the cut outs with a bit of water.

Crumbs are the best right?
Her first cake came out beautiful. What do you think?
