While in Florida earlier this year, I received a call from a man asking if I could make a dinosaur cake. More specifically, a request from his 4-year-old son, Jack, asking for a "T-Rex eating a rattlesnake cake." I told him I had never done anything like this before and had certainly never made a three-dimensional cake. We agreed that I would tackle this request and send him pictures of the progress to see if it was acceptable. So began my very first experimentation with a foreign substance I at first hated...but have since come to realize can be my friend...fondant. I do like a challenge and fortunately Jack was very pleased with the outcome. Grrrrrrr!
