Look at that- I made a cake.

So I had never ventured into the world of cakes... a cake seemed intimidating.  Cupcakes you screw one up and it's fine... but a cake... that's a different story.

Secondly, I had never covered a cake with fondant.  I was happy to discover it was a lot easier than expected.  Additionally, I made the fondant.  It's marshmallow fondant.  So easy to make!  Just marshmallows, touch of water and icing sugar.  Will definitely use that again. 

For my first cake, I think I did alright.  Inside vanilla cake with chocolate butter-cream filling.

Oh, here's what I've been baking for the last 9 months.
