Yup, I made this cake! It's my first attempt at a fondant-covered cake since I took the basic fondant course at Jo-Ann's two years ago. It's not perfect, but I'm pretty proud of it! Inside is four layers of chocolate cake filled with raspberry buttercream and frosted with vanilla buttercream under white rolled fondant.
I can't take all the credit. Melissa at My Cake School designed this cake and taught me how to make it. Melissa and her mother, BeBe, have been decorating cakes for years, and now they are teaching others their skills through a series of video tutorials - clear precise videos with lots of helpful tips.
In order to access the videos, you need to become a member. Membership is $30 a year - probably less than one course at JoAnn's - and besides learning a ton about all kinds of cake decorating, you can ask Melissa any of your cake decorating questions and get a prompt response, and read about what other members are doing. Well worth $30 in my opinion!
