Here is the original pin.
Food Network - Flower Pot Cake
I started out by finding a DIY Fondant recipe on Pinterest, you can see how I made that here.
I lined the 8" and 5"(the recipe suggests using a 6" pan but I did not have one) pans with parchment paper so the cakes would not stick to the pans.
Here is the final product. Even though it did not turn out as well as I thought, it was still delicious.
