Watch out "Cake Boss"!

My friend, Bernadette, and her daughter, Sarah, came over on Thursday afternoon for some cake decorating fun. We started with making the buttercream frosting, sealing the crumbs with a thin layer, the final frosting and smoothing with plastic wrap.
Sarah did a little piping, but young hands have difficulty with the pastry bag! She LOVED using fondant. I had some leftover fondant from the "Giraffe Cake". I used this recipe for the fondant.
I think fondant is a great way for the younger crowd to decorate cakes. It is so similar to using playdough!
She did an awesome job.
I love her look of concentration.
I certainly had fun, and I'm pretty sure she did too!
Watch out "Cake Boss". (It is her favorite show.)
Y'all come back,
Lorilee
