Is this a salad or a cake? A friend of mine sent me a salad cake video on Facebook and asked if I could make it for her son's birthday. I love a challenge (and the fondant work looked forgiving), so I said yes. It was such a fun adventure for me. I don't work with fondant very often, so covering a cake is super scary to me. With this cake, it really didn't matter, because the cake is in a bowl and the top is covered with "lettuce". The lettuce leaves are made out of wafer paper, which I have never worked with. It was really easy and it looked just like lettuce. I finished the cake and she loved it. Now, I'm looking for some new projects with cake. Stay tuned.
Head over to my Instagram page, www.instagram.com/mlsweetsofficial/ to see the cake after it's been cut. Tag me with cake you'd like to see me make or cookies. ;)
