An apple a day...

So I decided to try my hand at covering a cake in fondant for the first time. I thought with the kids going back to school, making an apple out of 2 bundt cakes stacked on top of each other with red fondant and a green worm coming out would be fun to make!
Yes, I have heard that red is one of the hardest colors to get...I was going to give it my all anyway. So I kneeded and kneeded in the "no-taste" red coloring - thank God it is No Taste!! I knew that the color darkens after time, so I did this the night before. The next day it still looked a little hot pink and my pictures actually make it look orange! The pictures look more like a pumpkin! O my daughter would say "I did my best"!

Very cute! I would have just smothered it in regular frosting colored with red food coloring. Very creative!
