This is Mia. She turned one on February 2nd, 2010.
This is Mia’s room.
This is Mia in her room. Well, actually, this is Mia in the dresser that’s in her room after she decided to take out all of her pajamas and climb in the drawer. (Photo of her falling out of the drawer and hysterical crying not included.)
This is Mia’s name hanging on the wall of her room.
This is the birthday cake that was inspired by Mia’s room.
And this is Mia about to eat the fondant topper from the birthday cake that was inspired by her room.
Now, for the bakers out there, here are some tips, tools, and tricks of the trade:
1. For easy, even fondant stripes, use a ribbon cutter. Also, use fondant that is on the drier side. If your fondant is too stretchy, knead some cornstarch or Tylose Powder into it. Allow the stripes to dry ever so slightly before applying.
2. For perfect lettering, try FMM Tappits. Just be sure to roll your fondant or gumpaste extra thin. Again, slightly drier fondant is best.
