Inexpensive Alternative to Fondant [One Fish Two Fish Cake]

I promise that this will be my last birthday post!!  I just have to share this valuable piece of party information!

So, believe it or not, I had a budget for the party and while I was looking for a cake I saw this and fell in love!  Realistically, the cake is too big and probably cost hundreds for dollars so I asked a few bakeries to just do my favorite tier, which is the One Fish Two Fish portion.  I wanted fondant but it is way too expensive... Here is what we ended up with and I love it!!

I got about 8 quotes and to do a cake that would feed about 15 people or less it was going to cost more than a hundred dollars! NO WAY!  This isn't her wedding and the cake only has to sit there for a few hours looking pretty.  Jill's Cake Creations finally gave me a wonderful and inexpensive option.  They told me I could print the image on eatable paper and they could place it around the cake!  It was more than half the cost and I was able to get a bigger cake! 


I am a control freak so I told them I would send them all the designs and images for them to print.  It took me awhile to design that image considering I am only working with paint and have yet to get photo shop.  All of those waves felt like forever to draw!!!  In the end, it was well worth it!  I even got to add my blog name in one of the fish.

And since we had way more than thirty people there, I had to supplement with cupcakes.  I just loved how they looked on the cupcake stand with the adorable little cupcake toppers!!  I got these from Vons for .50 a cupcake and they are delicious!!!  They were a big hit with the kiddos.

If you are interested in this One Fish Two Fish image for your cake, shoot me an email.  Even though I couldn't get the prettier fondant cake I was floored by how awesome this cake came out!  And let me tell you, it was oh so so so yummy!!  They have some of the best butter cream frosting I have ever had!

Thanks Jills Cake Creations for giving me a cheaper alternative to fondant!  You can also find them on facebook.  To top it off, they gave Cindy her smash cake for $5 and look at how beautiful it is!

That poor cake didn't stand a chance to her sweet tooth.

At first she was really hesitant about it but once she got in the groove there was no stopping her!  After getting very messy and massaging her cake a few times she let us know she was done.

So, if you are planning a party and are not looking to spend a fortune on fondant, consider printing an image onto the cake or even cupcakes!

    1. I am AMMA MARIA. I'm from america. I was going crazy when my husband left me and my two kids for another woman 2 weeks ago after 17years of marriage. We had a lovely marriage but he started a relationship with a co worker who chased after him. He is living away OUR home and refuses to talk to me or to come home. I was devastated and am finding it hard to cope . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't. I starting to feel ill. I have begged him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Larry can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. 4days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Larry. If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, Email him at: assurancesolutionhome@gmail.com you can call or Add him on Whatsapp +1(424)-261-8520
