My good friend Joanna has this tradition of celebrating her babies' monthly birthday every month until they turn one year old. For her youngest son's 7-month celebration, Amy and I volunteered to create the cake.
We have been dying to work with fondant and we finally found our chance. We never took the Wilton's fondant course, but with enough online research and watching online videos, we figured it wasn't too complicated... and it wasn't!
The entire experience was definitely a learning process.
Cake: double-layered red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and fondant
