My 7 year old daughter wanted to start making custom cakes. She loves art and has fun with it. Of course I have to do most of the work, but she will learn:). Working with fondant can be a pita, but I think I got it about fiqured out now. The one we made today turned out best of them all.

Here is the very first one we made:

Oh they taste just like regular cake becuase the actual cake part inside is just the cake mix you get from the store. You just choose which flavor you want. I think these are pillsbury. The fondant goes on top of that. You can eat the fondant. Its kinda chewy and kinda taste like gum or something.

Here is a cutout of chocolate on chocolate:

Looks good, my wife does cakes for a supermarket and she agrees the fondant is a pain.

What a great Dad! And talented too...I'm pretty impressed. I hope your daughter know how lucky she is.
I hope she does. She's my only child and spoiled:D. I try to teach her some kind of leason with each thing we do tegether. So at least she is learning something each time we do something. I call her a girly tomboy. She likes riding her go kart, but while she is riding it she pulls over to pick wildflowers:lol: . She likes to build model rockets with me too, but she paints them pink.

there are reciepes online for fondant that uses marshmellow and it actually tastes really good. maybe do some digging and see if you can find anything that might taste better then the regular fondant

Girls can get away with all that. Now, if it were a boy, I would be terribly worried.... :lol:
