Rated 3 out of 5 by MyrtleAmelia from I made this cake for my nephews Baptism, so I did leave off the "Communion Boy Topper". I just used the square mosaic pattern to the center where he would have been placed. I did not have too much trouble decorating this cake and it was my first try at fondant. The thing that took the most time of course was the blue squares. It took a long time to knead in the color evenly because the fondant is hard to knead. It also took a long time to cut all the small squares. The "square cut-outs" cutter is a must to get them even. Once I got them all ready, it did not really take too long to attach them. The only thing I had trouble with was the "bead bottom border". It did not transport well, and when I got to the dinner to set out the cake it was starting to come loose and the cake was on a very sturdy wooden cake board, so it did not get bent. If I did this one again I would do the bead border on-site. The other bad spot about this cake was that the people at the dinner complained (a lot) about the taste of the fondant. It got to be rather embarassing. I will probably stick to regular icing from now on. It was a beautiful cake however.
