Ugh!! I'm trying so hard to make a tiara for a little girls bday on monday... its a free range cake (I get to do what i want)... and since i dont get to do girly cakes very often thought I'd tackle the pillow/tiara cake... WELL!... 7 RI tiara's later I'm about to give up... they all pipe beautifully but are sooo fragile... and butter fingers me has dropped - one way or another - each one... so now I'm trying chocolate... not as easy to pipe... but is sure stronger... here's my attempt #1 at chocolate...

i don't like it icon_sad.gif it's ugly... of those that have made chocolate (candy) ones... what is the best finishing effect? can u just lustre it and it'll look okay?? think I'll colour the choc different... maybe purpley/pinker for a starter... ((sigh))... help .... plleeeeaaseee (at this point i'm grovelling)..

I'm really sorry but I don't see what you're talking about. That tiara looks beautiful!!! It's pretty, it's pink, it's sparkly and it has the little girl's name, everything a little girl needs to feel like a princess on her special day!!! You've done a fantastic job, don't be too critical of yourself. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

I think it looks really nice. And it is so special with her name in it as well.
