My first attempt at a dinosaur fondant cake

Hi ladies

Well I just finished making a dino fondant cake that I want to do for Simon's bday. Excuse the mess, all the baking stuff is in the backround. The fondant ended up being a bit dry so it ripped in a few places, I dont think you can tell in the picture. I'm going to have to do a few trial runs of the fondant until I get the feel for the right texture.

Its really good for being a first time fondant cake.. I tried to look at it closer but it didnt work. Fondant is hard to do.. I always give up and just do regular icing..

http://www.wilton.com/recipe/Rolled-Marshmallow-Fondant I uses this recipe. It is really good, I just added to much sugar while kneading it. I know for next time. I'm going to try again but with a easy shaped cake since I know that part will turn out ok, it's the fondant that needs practice.

That looks awesome! Fondant can be tough, especially on shaped cakes. You should be really proud - especially for your first fondant cake!

That is so cute! I think it looks perfect!
I've never even tried my hand with fondant as it looks terribly difficult.
