Transformers Bumblebee Cake!

I love my nephews and nieces to death! They are just so much fun and such a joy in my life! My nephew turned 5 yesterday and I volunteered to make a Transformers Bumblebee birthday cake for him!
I was pretty pleased with how it turned out! Especially since I have NEVER used fondant before (or made the sticky fun stuff either for that matter!) I made marshmallow fondant and it turned out pretty good! My family decided that it tastes somewhere between a "peep" and "circus peanut." It was pretty fun to work with . . . very much a live and learn experience! I volunteered to make another cake in June . . . so we will see what happens!
How cute is my little helper? She loved the fondant and marshmallows! (She also LOVED her ladybug birthday cake that her mama made!) We have LOTS of birthdays in May to celebrate!

Are you serious that you've never worked fondant before? WOW, I am very impressed, to say the least. The cake is BEAUTIFUL.I'm blown away. I've decorated wedding cakes for many years, but have never used fondant (I use buttercream). I've always been afraid of fondant. You did a fabulous job!!
