Flower Fondant Cake

I made this cake for my younger sister's 9th birthday. She didn't want an age-typical character cake, she wanted something a little more grown up. This is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting (used as the crumb coat) and fondant. I made the fondant using melted marshmallows, Crisco, powdered sugar, and various colors of food coloring. I used small cookie cutters to cut the leaves, flowers, and diamond shapes out of rolled, dyed fondant. I used a small dab of frosting to adhere the fondant cut-outs to the fondant covered cake.
