My First Cricut Cake!!!
My new Cricut Cake arrived in the mail - an anniversary present from my wonderful husband. Aren't I lucky? I couldn't wait to try it out! I baked a two-layer cake last night and iced it with buttercream icing. In the morning I looked up a recipe for marshmallow fondant and didn't realize I would have to refrigerate it for awhile before I put it on the the cake so that delayed my plans for awhile.
After supper I rolled out the fondant and put it on the cake - I never thought it would be so easy to do!
For the decorations I used the precoloured rolled fondant by Wilton that came with the machine bundle. It took a bit of trial and error but I think it turned out alright - with practice I'm sure I'll get better! I had to roll the fondant pretty thin, then after it was cut put it in the freezer for a few seconds to make it a little sturdier to transfer to the cake.
I had so much fun and can't wait to try some more! I think sugar cookies would be a lot of fun!
