Cinco De Mayo Cake

Cinco De Mayo Cake

A full sheet cake iced with a traditional buttercream and then decorated with fondant. I made my own marshmallow fondant (kind of a pain to work with)and made fondant figures/decorations by hand. For the sun, I made a ball of yellow and flattened it a bit so it would sit nicely on the cake, then made the triangle flares for the sun and attached them with toothpicks. I used chocolate jimmies for the cactus, using a toothpick first to make the hole, and then tweezers to place each jimmie in the holes.
This cake was so much fun to make and to serve. It was a BIG hit!!
