We covered the cake with a crumb coat, then let it sit. Next we covered it with white fondant, and decorated it with the bow strips and loops. I used the paisley impression to give the fondant a fabric look. It's not my favorite look, but it was good to try a new technique.
I used my new Wilton rolling pin for the first time, that was interesting! I did not like it as much as my old trusty wooden one, and my hands were sore this morning, go figure. So, I'm not convinced it is better! You can see the new rolling pin here in the picture, it's white plastic. Hope you like my finished cake from the Fondant Project class!
