Coffee Cup Cake

So this is my second time working with fondant and well I should not have tried an odd shape. I had trouble getting it smooth at the bottom, top looked great..but I cut that away to add the ‘coffee look’.

It turned out ok…not what I had in my head. I also got very tired at midnight for two nights in a row working on cakes. Hope it tastes better than it looks!
