I must say, it wasn't an easy task. I did end up making my own fondant recipe from scratch, with a recipe that I found from The Duke, which turned out perfectly! Follow her recipe and instructions and you should have no problem. The one thing that I did differently, was that I added my food coloring to the water in the beginning and it seemed to worked out fine for me. I started the whole process around 9 o' clock at night, when I got the boys to bed and I didn't finish it until after midnight. So I definitely put a lot of time and effort into it, but my little guy is so worth it! And the look on his face when he took his first glance at it this morning was priceless! His jaw literally dropped... it made me so happy to see the excitement on his face. My husband was even surprised at how well it turned out. He told me I should consider going into business, which is the ultimate compliment coming from him. My sister actually loved the cake so much that she has already offered to be my first client and wants me to do the cake for her son's birthday in July! Hopefully I will have more practice under my belt by then too!
