Girly Cake

So my friend and I wanted to continue practicing with fondant so we decided to try a really fun and girly cake! I Googled around and saw cakes that combined polka dots, stripes, and diamonds and thought they looked really neat. I think our skills are definitely improving, even though we still have a lot more to learn about the techniques of working with fondant. The top tier sloped a little because I forgot to use stabilizing straws :(

For this cake, I used my same marshmallow fondant recipe as I've used in prior cakes. The top two tiers used my mocha frosting recipe and for the large bottom tier I tried a lemon frosting I found on All Recipes, it was so good!!


Lemon Frosting Ingredients
-4 cups powdered sugar
-2 tablespoons lemon juice
-1 teaspoon fresh grated lemon zest
-2 tablespoons milk
-1 stick butter, softened

1.In large bowl, beat powdered sugar, butter, lemon juice and  lemon zest until smooth. Beat in milk, and increase speed and continue to beat until light and fluffy.
