Theresa's Mixed Nuts: The Fault In Our Stars Cake

The Fault In Our Stars Cake

I got this brilliant idea in my head that I wanted to make Mariah's birthday cake this year. Since she loves The Fault In Our Stars, it would only be logical that would be the cake's theme. Now, I love messing around with polymer clay. After browsing around on Pinterest and Googling how to work with fondant (something I have NEVER done before!), I figured it couldn't be much different than working with the clay. Yeah, I don't care what those tutorials tell you, it is different! Rolling out that fondant and shaping it was such a pain in the ass, by the end I wanted to chuck the whole ball of it out the window. The fault doesn't lie in the stars. It lies in my inability to cake decorate.

Since I had already committed to making the cake, wasted too much time in trying to figure out what I was doing, she got it served to her on her birthday anyway. I think she was probably trying to be nice when she said she liked it ;)

I swore- never again! Of course, Allison loved it and demanded a Frozen themed cake for her birthday. I hope she forgets by December!

  4. I don't know why you don't like it, that cake is c.u.t.e!! You must be too close to it, and still mad at the fondant to see how cute it is. Maybe you'll have recovered by Dec. when it's time to make the Frozen cake, hahaha

    1. Cause they are 2 pudgy rollie polies with no necks, and the cigarettes look like some sticks with red ends lol. Oh well, maybe I'll find a detailed Frozen tutorial before December rolls around.

    1. I really admire those that can make such lovely cakes. I never realized just how hard it was until I tried it myself. Now I know why they can cost quite a bit!

  9. I think you are beating yourself up. It turned out GREAT!!! My Granddaughter turned 21 and her older sister made her a drunken Barbie cake.

  10. I think it looks great, too. I consider myself to be somewhat crafty, but I've never attempted to do anything more than a basic cake. Luckily my sister who lives in North Dakota now likes to make and decorate cakes so she always does Elliott's birthday cakes.

  11. I think it turned out great!

    I've had times where I've wanted to chuck something I've made out the window. My husband laughs at me because I curse the whole time I'm making whatever it is I'm making. I insist I have to make it though.
