I made Daniel an XBOX controller cake for his birthday! The boys were shocked when they saw it and they of course LOVE IT! What fun it is to create these cakes! :)

I did want to try something new. I came across rolled buttercream an alternative for fondant. The taste is fine but it not as easy to work with as fondant. Will definately stick to marshmallow fondant. The rolled fondant stuck to everything and tore as soon as I lift it up. I ended up rolling it out on wax paper and then guessing where on the cake to place it to cover the whole cake and plopped it over the cake! Thankfully it worked, minus a few patched areas! I really liked the stick up control buttons which I hope you can see from the picture.
