The First Cake

So here it is…my first fondant cake that started my recent cake-making frenzy!  I made this ‘modern circles and stripes’ cake last year for my sis-in-law’s birthday.  I had said to Nick, “Those cakes on The Food Network are so awesome, I wonder if we could try one.”  And off to Michaels I went with my 40%-off-any-one-regular-priced-item coupon in hand to get some supplies. We had fun (though we were up all night: Lesson #1, plan early and start early) and I was excited to end up with a cute cake.  This cake is not too much to brag about in regards to taste–I was focused all on appearance (how shallow of me) and not on “homemade-ness” as I am now.  I used Wilton boxed fondant and boxed cake-mix.  Now, 1 KitchenAid Stand Mixer later, (Merry Christmas from Nick 2009) I’m committed to fresh ingredients and scratch (thank you allrecipes) recipes.  (Have you had enough parenthesis yet?)  For those of you who got a taste of “The First Cake”, thanks for the compliments that encouraged me to make more!
