A lot of people who make cakes think there is some mystery to working with fondant. I say with a little knowledge to help you out you can just dive right in and start making awesome cakes! Below are some of the cakes I have made.
Note* I am not a professional cake maker. I was once paid $100 for a cake that I paid over $80 in electronics to make, but it was for a friend and I got to keep the pan. (it was the ufo cake below) Other than that it has just been for friends and family. Mostly my children.
I did once make a website to showcase my cakes thinking about trying to go pro. I decided against it but the website is still there. Since quite a few of my cakes move or do something, its worth it to go there to see the videos. www.davesonfire.com/cakes
