Flower Pot Cakes for Mother's Day
Both cakes are chocolate cakes with chocolate buttercream frosting covered and decorated with marshmallow fondant. The "soil" on the cakes is a mix of crumbled chocolate cake and vanilla cake which my boyfriend suggested; how ingenious!
I only let the fondant flowers dry out for a few hours but I suggest allowing them to dry over night in flower formers or egg cartons to avoid looking so flat. Also, I wrapped the cake vertically in fondant which I noticed later caused a lot of sagging. Next time, I would cover the cake upside down in fondant then flip it right side up.
