I did this cake as a thank-you to a friend. Yes! I'd finally found out about rolled fondant by the time I made this. From then on I almost always made my own fondant. The store bought stuff was expensive, and didn't seem to hold on to color as well as my own did.
I covered the board with the same 'spotted' fondant to help tie it in to the cake design. Making the cow and grass was the most fun. It was like a tiny sculpture. I loved this project!
