New Cake Decorating Test

I am glad I tested my idea.  (Oh and after the day I have been having I needed baking me-time during nap)

So my idea... using my wonderful cookie cutters to spell out Happy Birthday Kaitlyn on top of Kaitlyn's Cake using Marshmallow Fondant.

So I find this recipe for Marshmallow Fondant.  I make it, and it is actually really easy.  It involved a LOT of kneading ... kneading works out aggression ... I colored it, more kneading. 

Started cutting out the letters.  (after I figured out the pattern I wanted to use.  Sesame Street Beginnings Theme)  Well as you can see there will be no room for anything on the cake if I go this route.

So.... I will be spending quite a few hours on Friday decorating a 1/2 sheet cake to look like Elmo, Grover, and Cookie Monster.  If I can I will be adding Abby Caddaby and Zoe, but we will see.  I was also planning on having cookies as different monsters - decorated of course.  Hmmmm.. maybe I should get a babysitter.  :)  Too bad my sister just told me they are not leaving until later on Friday when it started as Late Thursday/Early Friday.   Oh well.

Moral of the story.  I am glad I tested.


  1. It looks great and clean! It would also be neat if you could find a gloss to go over the letters to make them glossier (or less matte.) That would add a bit more pizzaz (sp?). Then again, I am not cake maker.

    The colors are great though and I am sure this little girl will love it.

  2. I might be able to do something with corn syrup to make them glossier.

    Kaitlyn won't care one way or the other she is only turning 1. :)
