It cracked pretty much the moment I put the fondant on the cake and making the logo too FOREVER. Seriously, the amazingly talented artists on Ace of Cakes make it look so easy!
I didn't really care for the buttercream frosting I made (I'll spare you the recipe), but overall the vanilla cake was good. It had a the delicate wedding cake texture I was looking for and the flavor was great. The Wilton fondant I used left much to be desired. It tasted terrible. Does all fondant taste like that?
It's a little hard to see but the cake had four layers (I split the two layers I made). I alternated mini chocolate chips and strawberries between each one. I should have ditched the chocolate chips and just did strawberries throughout. They were yummy!
Although this cake wasn't perfect and it didn't look anything like I had intended, it put a smile on a lot of people's faces and that warmed my heart. I have A LOT to learn about fondant but I'm not giving up yet...
Yield: I doubled the recipe and made a double layer-half sheet cake. I was able to get about 50+ pieces.
Would I Make This Again? I would use the cake recipe again. I loved the flavor and the texture. It was great! 4 out of 5 stars. I do need to find a better buttercream and better fondant. Suggestions welcome!
