I made loads of fresh homemade fondant for my husband's birthday cake. I spent so much time decorating it (this one took me hours!), there was no way I would be okay with even a drop of candle wax dripping on his silhouette. I used the leftover fondant to mold into candle holders to place in front of the cake. They stuck to the tray very firmly. Not a worry in the world!

I made this birthday cake for my daughter last year. She is so lucky to have a 4th of July birthday, so I tend to go a little crazy playing on the red, white, and blue theme. :)


To create the neat marbled look I dividing my fondant in thirds. I dyed 1/3 red, 1/3 blue, and left the remaining 1/3 white. I then rolled each ball into more of a hot dog shape, held them all together, and twisted them around each other a few times. I then carefully made the whole thing into a ball and rolled it out to the proper size to cover my cake. I really love how it turned out!

After covering the cake I trimmed off all of the excess fondant. Next I rolled out a smaller piece of white fondant and using a tiny cookie cutter, I cut out a bunch of stars. I went around the cake once with them. Then I did a second layer of them to cover the gaps where the cake showed in between the first set of stars.

For the top I cut out a large white star, with a tiny star cut out of it. I also cut out a few tiny stars from the excess marbled fondant that I covered the cake with. I wrote her name using melted white chocolate (that I put in a baggie with a corner snipped off).

I made this two tiered birthday cake and decorated the the whole thing with fondant. I really enjoy marbling fondant so I chose to marble a teal and a blue color together.


It was for a young girl so I wanted to make funky yet beautiful, so I chose to make the bow and dots in a bright pink.
