Princess Pillow Cake
Yesterday was a big day for me. I finally proved to myself that I can make a really cool, worthy of payment, cake!! i offered to make a cake for a friends daughters 10th birthday. So I thought about it for a bit and went BIG! Right, isn't the saying "Go big or go home!" Well I went for it. I studied up on how to make a pillow cake. Well here is the final product! Yahooo it looks cool. The birthday girl loved it and I got so many Ooohhhhs and Aaaahhhhhs. Felt really gratifying. So Here it it. I used two 8" squear pans and put them botton to bottom. Iced it covered it with homemade marshmallow fondant. I used the Cricut Cake to make the tiara and words. The cartridges I used were Storybook and elegant cakes. Thanks for looking. (Oh, I've already got and order for my very first PAID cake!! Yahoo)

as you should! This cake is phenomenal! Can you post a tutorial? I have no idea how you did the cording or what looks life tufting! So amazing! If you wouldn't mind sharing, I would LOVE your recipe for the marshmallow fondant! AND you should totally post this on the message boards!!! The girls would go crazy over there! Jinger also picks a cake of the week and the winner gets something over at the Cricut Cake Facebook website. I'm proud to "know" you! :)
