I can't believe that Wyatt has turned two years old! Wowsers, where has the time gone? I debated and debated whether or not I would make Wyatt a fondant cake for his birthday or not. I didn't have any great ideas for one, so I decided unless something popped into my mind then I wouldn't worry about it. Well unfortunately for me something did pop into my mind. He loves fish and water, so I came up with this underwater theme. Keeping with my usual style and laziness, it's still pretty simple. Like his cake last year, which was my first time attempting a fondant cake, for this second attempt I used 6" cake pans to keep it small and, frankly, easier to make. It was fun, I actually made my own fondant this time instead of using the disgusting store bought fondant that I used last year. I don't know how they can sell that stuff as edible, because it shouldn't be. I used this recipe from All Recipes for the fondant, recommended by This and That. I also used the changes that reviewers recommend, using corn syrup instead of glucose syrup and decreasing the 1/4 cup of water to 3 Tablespoons. It turned out great, and was surprisingly simple to make.
I had told Wyatt about the cake yesterday, and he actually asked for it this morning when I reminded him it was his birthday. He was so excited to see it and cried when I made him get down off the counter. I guess that makes it all worth it.
