Derby Days Cake

This was my first fondant cake. It was for Baylor – Sigma Chi’s philanthropy event, Derby Days. The cake is modeled after a woman’s derby hat. It is a chocolate cake with butter cream icing covered in homemade, yellow, marshmallow fondant and decorated with white fondant flowers, green fondant leaves, and a blue…you guessed it, fondant, bow.
