Limiting My Career Options

I had almost forgotten how positively disgusting fondant can be. Seriously? If you don't add something to it (I prefer vanilla) it tastes like play-dough.
That said, I had fun working with it. Although, I think this proves I will never have a career as a baker.
When I do make her cake, I plan on adding the vanilla and color to the animals. Animals always taste better when first soaked in vanilla. Or lemon.

The elephant turned out alright. I think the head needs to be a little bit bigger but not too bad for a first attempt.
OK, so the tusks are a little lopsided.
Yes, distorted monkey. Well, didn't I tell you it would be? But look! I made up for it by giving him a banana.

Snake. Like that was terribly difficult.

The frog. I'm not sure what I think of it yet. That's a little dragonfly he's trying to eat in case you were wondering.

The bird. The bird needs work. The bird looks like a lump of fondant.
I hate the bird but I feel like I need to add something else.
Any ideas?

I am SO impressed! I never put that much thought into things, even the kids' birthdays. I love to bake, but my stuff isn't creative and cute, like this will be. I can't wait to see the finished masterpiece.

Thanks! I love to do stuff like this. The kid's birthdays, the holidays, that's pretty much the only time I get to do this stuff!
