So we had a complete blast today with family and friends during Moosy’s 6th birthday celebration at the YMCA! We had a Swamp People themed party. We ordered tacos from Blue Coast Burrito, I made a red velvet cake but decorated it with fondant and we got a lot of little swamp-inspired nick-nacks…
A big shutout to my mother-in-law Dorothy and sister-in-law Mary Liz that stayed up until late hours of the night to help me with the cake. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t had made it w/o their help. They are awesome and I am very thankful for them! If anybody wondered about the cake, it was my first time doing fondant and I pretty much used this as an inspiration for mine. I used two different kinds of fondant that I got from walmart. Duff fondant and Wilton fondant. And I’ll have to say for a total beginner like me, the Duff fondant was so easy to use and mold, and it tasted awesome. On the other hand the Wilton fondan was very hard to mold and tasted pretty disgusting. I used the Wilton fondant for anything brown (letters, rocks and the cat’s tail plants), so before I served the cake I warned everybody to avoid eating it. So next time I’m going to use Duff fondant for everything.
I wish I would had taken more pics, but between getting everybody fed, loosing my iPhone and watching Brie and T-Bear the party and fun happened, and I ended up not taking very many pics.
All and all the party and food turned out great and everybody that made it had a great time!
These are the few pics I took, but if I get my hands on more I’ll upload them later!
