Paris' Birthday Cake

after much deliberation Paris finally decided on a toadstall cake for her 11th birthday... so I set to making one... 

This cake challenged me more than other cakes I've made for two reasons... it was my first time using fondant icing, and it was my first ever "double" layer cake...

1st Layer

second layer - and some detailing

The finished product

Now at this point, I must mention that I did not make the fondant fairies at all.  These were made by a good friend of mine, with the help of her daughter and Paris
