I finally got Suzanne's cake crafted the way I wanted. I am tickled with how it turned out. It's the first time I've ever done a tiered cake and the first time I've ever used Fondant. I'm not ready to do a wedding (nor would I ever want to ---) but I think it's pretty cute! The letters and numbers are made from the fondant, as are the tiny pearls.
In keeping with the theme, I did put the duck on the back --- I just didn't think it worked on the front.
The party cake is iced, but I have to construct the faucet and knobs and fill with Jello. The jello can't be done too far ahead, so I'm just waiting on that. I'll post pictures of it later! Tomorrow I gotta clean this place up. Big thanks to Andrea for your help today!!!
