Wilton Course 4 - Fondant and Gum Paste

We have practiced a few flowers in this course, but I forgot to take my camera :(. At least we didn't have time to finish this cake there, so I could take pictures at home. In the 2nd class of this Course we tried to finish our carnations and learned how to make fantasy flowers with gum paste. I finished decorating the cake just yesterday at home. It's a vanilla cake filled with a coconut cream, it's a kind of creamy macaroons or macaroons dough colored with green gel coloring. This cake I was gonna give to my friend Luana, who's going to visit her family in Brazil, but I just saw her on Sunday (I said that somewhere in this blog). That's why is yellow and green outside and inside. It's yummy! My husband took it to his work and they devoured it lol The fondant I made with marshmallows again. Also, we learned how to make marble effect and used it for covering the plate, but this was 2 weeks ago.
