Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this cake for my cousins 2nd b-day, which happen to fall on Easter weekend. It turned out really cute. Everyone loved it & went on about how adorable it was! I didn't have the paisley pan set but I did have an extra cake board. I drew the shape I needed on it & cut it out. Instant template! When I was ready to cut my cake I just laid down the template & cut around it. Also I made the fondant form marshmallows. This is the site I got the recipe & instructions from. Overall I would say that this cake was fairly easy & fun to make. It was also suggested to me that with a little alteration this cake could easily be made into a cute fish. So there you, yet again another idea! :O)
