"Terrible Two Ahead," says the sign on this terrific toddler truck-topped cake. The balancing act on this one is truly spectacular and you have to love the little road going around the bottom tier. What kid wouldn't love this?

What is MM Fondant and is there a Recipe?

Marshmallow Fondant is Fun, Fun, Fun!

Most topsy turvy cakes use fondant 'icing' to get that fabulous, smooth look and those great colors. You can purchase pre-made fondant, but can you make it yourself? Here is one answer I found...

From the What's Cooking America web site:

QUESTION: What is MM Fondant and is there a Recipe? Thanks.

ANSWER: "MM Fondant is a fondant type icing that is easily made at home. The ingredients are few and accessible in any local grocery market. The primary ingredients are Marshmallows and powdered sugar. True fondant is quite difficult to make and expensive because of the time to make it and the ingredients that are needed. Most folks purchase a premade true fondant."

Wonky 50th Anniversary Elegance


This elegant 50th anniversary centerpiece shows that topsy-turvy cakes aren't just for children. Fun, yet regal, the gold fondant on this tempting treat looks like a fine piece of art. What a wonderful way to celebrate golden (or silver) anniversaries, milestone birthdays, or even company events.

Dare to Be Spectacular!

I hope these amazing cakes will inspire you in planning

your next party or event.

I try to bring you the best of the best

---but remember,

It's not about perfection -

It's about having fun!

Thank you for your kind comments!
