I was asked to do another cake for my Mother's class. The boy loves basketball and chocolate. So, I thought a basketball cake could be easy enough and clearly I'm good enough to fondant a cake again.
I made a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream painted orange. I measured the top of the cake and rolled the fondant accordingly. I layed the fondant on the cake and *facepalm*. I measured for the top of the cake, the 9" not enough to cover the entire cake! I didn't have enough for the rest so thi was now a semi-fondant covered cake.I thought I could add texture now that the fondant was on the cake and it wasn't working well. So I gave up and focused on the lines and writing the boys name. I was pretty proud of it, even thought it wasn't perfection. It was still pretty okay.
