I have always struggled with making birthday cakes look...acceptable. I was at Michael's this week getting some supplies for Little Ladybug Girl's birthday party later today, and came across Duff Goldman's new line of cake decorating supplies. I saw his pre-made fondant, and thought, why not? It had to taste better than WIlton fondant, and I'm used to rolling stuff with all of the bread baking that I do. Surely it had to be easier than piping frosting.

I'm a convert! I don't know that I'll ever pipe frosting again! I'm NOT bragging, I'm just extolling the virtues of this stuff! Now I will try and find a homemade fondant recipe, though Duff's stuff tastes really good. It's just pricey. So, see for yourself:

BTW, Mr. BikeMan admitted to being the one who checked this off as "boring". :)- Silly man!

That is SUPER cute!!! Hooray for fondant. After watching my sis and her former cake decorating business, I know that fondant has really revolutionized the way "decorated" cakes can look! That ladybug cake is incredibly cute!
