My Daughter's Fondant Cake


My fourteen year old daughter (Tati of Polka Dot Pantry Sweets) and her friend Carla made this adorable cake as a test cake for a cake competition at their junior high.  I thought it came out so cute.  It was the first three-layer cake that either of them had ever made.  There were 46 cake entrants -- they didn't win in the fondant category, but, being her mom, I though that they should have!  The cake they made for the competition looked even better; I didn't incude a photo because the photo quality wasn't very good in the gym.  They learned a lot about cake making and fondant.  We got the idea for the top part of the cake from Frenchy.

I love it! How fun that the girls entered the contest! I'm telling you, I see "Tati's Bakery" in the near future-and I'm sure the pig cupcakes will be a big seller:@)

The girls cake should have won the grand prize. It's so darn cute and they did a fantastic job.

are you kidding?! She's 14 and can do that?! i can't do that

Judy said...

I can't believe she's 14! Her cake is better then a lot of adults who try decorating with fondant. She has a promising future in the cake world. Excellent job!

I'm in love with this(test) cake! The fondant work is beautiful! Love the pretzel fence too:) I can't imagine that their entry didn't win! So talented!

It turned out so cute. Tell her she has to post it on her blog too! I love all of the details. They did a great job. She is a winner in my book.

Tati I love it and am sooooo proud of you! You can make my birthday cake this year. (You can even put tombstones on it.)

What a darling cake. Congratulations to Tati and Carla for doing such a great job. I adore the tombstones and pumpkins!

Also Joni, my oldest daughter called me said for a YMYW party this week she made some darling paper shoes she found online. They were Zoulah's and I was able to brag that you are my friend!!!! Thanks for sharing that idea too.

I think the cake is beautiful. I've never even tried working with fondant...hard to imagine that a 14-year-old did this so well.

Thanks again for the wonderful surprise "birthday" win! You made my day!

Awesome job. Wish the girls could have won. I hope they keep up with the cake decorating. Promising careers ahead here.
