Cherry Blossom Cake!

Difficulty Level: Difficult

Isn't this cake adorable?! It took quite a while. We made two yellow cakes and a simple glaze with powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Then we made the fondant for the flowers and leaves. We melted down a bag of marshmallows in a saucepan. MAKE SURE TO GREASE THE PAN WELL!! If you don't, all that sticky marshmallow will stick to the sides and take a long time to clean. When the marshmallows were completely melted down, we poured it on the table. Yup! Poured the melty goop on the table. Of course, we coated the table in about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar too. Then we kneaded the powdered sugar into the marshmallow. Make sure that it's not too hot! When it's completely mixed together, it should be tough but not too hard to squeeze and shape. We added food dye to the fondant and shaped the flowers and leaves. This took the longest- an hour and a half! But it was worth it in the end. We glazed the whole cake, used chocolate frosting for the trunk and branches, and then stuck on the flowers and leaves. It was almost too pretty to eat! (Almost)


  1. A beautiful cake! But I think you meant to say that the fondant should be tough but NOT too hard to squeeze and shape. Sorry, always editing.
