The (almost) finished cake…

I made a basic cram filling…milk,egg yolk,sugar, and vanilla.

the fondant was one of the messiest things ever! You melt marshmallows, and a splash of water..then 32ox powdered sugar and 1/2c shortening. It STICKS everywhere! (check out the bowl!)

magically, with some food coloring and lots of muscle..it becomes this! I got 3-4lbs! It retails for $13 a pound! I spent $2.67!

These cakes were made with the cupcake recipe posted earlier….except I added almond extract

I used a blackberry jam filling
A rich custard filling…
awaiting the robe of fondant
yum…extra leftover
a bit naked, but done!
