I made this cake last summer for my daughter's 5th birthday. The characters were all made out of marshmallow fondant, as was the "yellow brick road". My daughter made the "Toto", so that's what that little grey blob is. I'm by no means a professional, or even experienced, cake decorator. But I had a lot of fun! This year I'm making an Alice in Wonderland cake for her, and I'm just hopeful that it turns out as well as this one did.
