The first thing I did was make homemade pound cake. Buddy from Cake Boss likes to use pound cake because it is easier to handle. I usually buy a box cake, but I really enjoyed making the cake myself and it turned out really yummy. I made two 8 inch rounds and filled between the two with regular icing and dirty iced the rest of it. I then rolled out my fondant and laid that over the dirty icing and smoothed it out as best I could. To give it a little decoration I rolled fondant balls and scored the top and sides. I'm very happy with my first try and I'm excited to make Chloe Jo's birthday cake now!
You know no post is complete without pictures of the cutie pie! I found these two headbands in the dollar aisle at a store tonight. Ha!
