We took the kids to Sea World in July and Lauren fell in love with Shamu. I was horrified when she said she wanted a Shamu birthday party...how on earth would I make a Shamu cake? I looked at some pictures online and became even more terrified when I realized I was going to have to make Shamu out of Rice Krispie Treats and FONDANT! The first time I used fondant was for Lauren's 2nd birthday and it just didn't go well so I haven't touched it since then. I never even posted the picture of that cake. I was nervous all the way up until Shamu was completely done. Lauren told me how she wanted the bottom cake decorated and she went with the decorations on the centerpiece.
Not too bad I have to say.
