Sweet Success!

So Randall's cousin Kalli has a birthday coming up next week and her theme is Hot Pink with Zebra stripes. I thought it would be fun to make a cake that went along with her theme. Now I've never before even made a basic cake from scratch, nor decorated a cake with anything but plain ol' frosting and candles...but since I watch food network all the time, I figured it can't be that hard right? Well...I was wrong! I spent Friday night making the fondant to top the cake, and literally ALL day Saturday working on the silly cake. I finally finished it up at about 11 last night! Unfortunately, this was just a practice run for next week! But, I was proud of the overall outcome and I think I will be much faster and better the second time around.
