Bluebird Bough Fondant Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for mother's day and my mom loved it! It would be better if there was a few more pictures from different angles. Also, it would help it the instructions were more detailed. you should make your branches and birds a day or two ahead with a bit of gum paste added to the fondant to help it harden.
