I made this lemon cake for the Great to Be 8 Fireside my ward was having. They meet to prepare the kids who will be turning 8 this year to be baptized. I wanted a water feel to the cake, and the little figure looks a bit like my daughter, who will be 8 in May. The figure was wearing the white baptismal jumpsuit, it even had a tiny zipper.
One of my friends has a Mardi Gras Party every year-it is not wild and crazy, but the food is always great. She had me make a cake for the party. The top layer was white cake with a strawberry whipped cream filling and the bottom layer was lemon cake with lemon filling. I used a plastic mask to mold a fondant one. It turned out pretty good considering the fondant still a little soft.
