Here is the infamous graduation cake I confidently took the on the task of making without a single minutes worth of experience with fondant.
I made homemade marshmellow fondant and it was super easy for anyone out there wanting to try it. It takes about 10 minutes for one batch and cost less than $5. I used Wilton food coloring in burgundy and golden yellow which worked perfectly. Of course I had to make 5 batches to get enought for all the decorations and both the cakes. Covering each cake with fondant is not as easy as cake boss makes it seem, there were obvious flaws in mine I had to cover with fondant decorations.
All in all I'm very happy the cake is done and everyone raved about how good it tasted which is the most important part. I wasn't crazy about how the cake looked as a whole and I have sworn off doing anymore tiered cakes until I have taken some classes or something because it is serious work. I now completely understand why custom cakes are so pricey.
