We’ve been watching episodes of Netflix’s Nailed It recently. For those that haven’t see it before, the premise is simple. A professional baker is invited on the show and bakes a cake like item that they are famous for. Then they bring in 3 contestants that are not as talented and have them try to reproduce the baked good in a very short amount of time. They are set up to fail from the start, making it quite humorous.
This got Danelle thinking about baking her own item. She would give herself unlimited time. She felt she could do a great job, so it was decided to make a cake for Corvin’s birthday. Since he’s running Cross Country, she though a running shoe would be a good challenge!
Just after baking the cake, here is the start. It doesn’t look like much and I was quite skeptical.
Patterns were made to help it take the correct shape.
She wasn’t excited about using rolled fondant, so she made marshmallow fondant.
Then I went away and came back and it looked awesome!
Pretty much finished. Never expected it to be this good!
Some fancy cupcakes to go with it.
Corvin finally getting his cake.
