Amber Makes A Cake

Amber decorates her first cake!
For some time now my daughter Amber has been asking to decorate her own cake using fondant. She loves ballet, hearts and flowers, and her favourite colours are pink and purple. So, with the help of cookie cutters and lots of icing sugar, Amber decorated her first cake. This is the result of all her hard work.


First, Amber rolls out the pink fondant on a special plastic rolling sheet, making sure it is thick enough for cutting.


Then she cuts out the shapes she wants using cookie cutters dipped in icing sugar so it won't stick to the cutter.


She sticks the shapes to the cake using buttercream icing squeezed out of a pastry bag.


She keeps adding to her design until she is happy with the way it looks. I think she should be very proud of what she did!
