The Cake…

I spent most of my Saturday making/building/decorating this cake. It wasn’t easy. The story behind the cake is that my mom has this friend, Luli, that she has known for years. However my mom hadn’t heard from her in years and thanks to Facebook they were able to reconnect. So my mom thought it would be a great idea if we made her a “Facebook Cake.” We didn’t really know what we were getting ourselves into. Fondant isn’t so easy to work with. So here are some pictures! I don’t think the cake turned out too bad. Plus the birthday girl loved it! So that’s what counts…
