This weekend I made this cake for some really good friends son and fiance. There were some serious ups and downs. This was my first attempt covering a square cake with fondant. I also had some major issues with trimming and trying to get everything "square". *sigh* At one point I was in tears thinking it was not going to happen, but I'm happy with the final result. I learned a lot doing this cake.
The bottom is a cake form (or whatever the fake styrofoam things are called)
Mint Chocolate with an Andes Mint bittercream filling
Almond with Mascopone mousse filling
The Groom is a Duke fan, but the bride is a Carolina girl!
Isn't this just the perfect graduation cake? The person on top is a bit scary, a little bright, but I'm still happy with the end result. This took 2 hours to ice and decorate (I did stop to eat before putting the person on the top). Longer than I thought it would. I free handed the circles. Can you tell? Hey, it's Dr. Seuss so wonky is good. ;)
