This was Jeremy's 1st Birthday cake and I made it the same way as I made the Tractor cake. Using svg files is really an easy way to create a character cake and you really do not need many special tools. I did use a few special tools on this cake, a few cake decorating tips and some disposable frosting bags but other than that nothing special. I am going to try the marshmallow fondant recipe I have found online to see if it will work in place of the store bought fondant, As many of you know, I do not have a craft store in my area and I bought the fondant when I went out of town. The box of fondant was $20, I did use a coupon but I would rather save that money for craft supplies and make my own homemade fondant plus I can flavor it and make it taste better! I will keep y'all posted and check back later, I made decorated heart sugar cookies for Story Time at the Library today and they turned out cute! (It is non Cricut! LOL)
I am a self employed Wife, Mother of one grown daughter and we are raising our Grandson. I have lots of hobbies and finding time with a 2 year old is a challenge. I try to craft and make cards at least several times a week, I am not always successful. I also garden, do housework, love to cook, am into photography, reading, stained glass, basketry, scrapbooking and computers.
