I'm not a very good cook. I'm pretty limited to foods that have directions listed on the box. This is probably one of the few lifestyle blogs that will share very few recipes - most that you could have figured out yourself. I was pretty proud of this cake though! Although it didn't taste all that great (booooo!), it certainly looked pretty good for my first attempt at using fondant.
Duff brand makes really simple to use fondant and their cake mix is pretty simple too! I'd stick with a cake mix you know though, this one tended to be a little crumby. Hell, try it though! I may have just screwed it up.
I used cookie cutters for the beanie, sunglasses and bow tie, but I hand-cut the stripes and mustache. Brandon wasn't feeling well at all the past few days... He even had to take a trip to the ER.... So I made him a cake that looked like him to make him feel better. You too can bake your own hipster!
