First Fondant Cake

I'm doing a cake for my friend's wedding in October and this is my first try. Planning on doing a geode cake for that, but I had enough leftover fondant to try flowers this time. Those could have gone better. The cake is butter cake with lemon curd and vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream. I used recipes from the class. Tasted pretty good.

Q&A with cahill95117628638

AidensGma asked:
I love the way you did your fondant. How did you get it to look like that and the gold also? It's beautiful.
cahill95117628638 answered:
Thanks! It was surprisingly easy really. The gold is hand painted, I mixed gold dust with vodka to make the paint, though you can use lemon juice too I think. The fondant is a mix of two marbling methods, I pre-streaked white fondant with gel color and marbled it all together with matching precolored fondant. Here are the videos I used for inspiration: http://youtu.be/z4lkydtXykw http://youtu.be/YNMvrd-ktVw I mainly used the braiding method from the first one though.
