These were the cupcakes I took for my birthday in Kindergarten. I made all of the flowers with little green cutters and a ball tool. It took me about two hours to make them. Mom baked the cupcakes, then I cut out fondant for the tops with a drinking glass.
This was my school contest cake in first grade. My mom saved cake scraps in the freezer for a few months, and I crumbled them all up in a big bowl and mixed in frosting, to make a dough that I could form into a snake. Then I rolled out pieces of fondant on a placemat so they would have bumps and put them all over the cake. Last I painted snaky designs on with food color.
This year the school contest theme for my grade is Jungle or Forest. I will be showing step-by-step how to make my cake this year. Stay tuned!
