Last night we had an Oscar party at my friend Wendy's house. She hosts this party every year. The menu is always themed toward the movies that were nominated. Naturally I took it upon myself to make an "Up" themed cake for the party. It was a chocolate cake (from a box mix) because Kevin loves chocolate. I made a buttercream frosting for the cake and balloons. The house is made out of fondant. This was my first time working with fondant. I guess it came out okay, though I wish the house looked a bit better.
