Well I used the rose nail in my cake and it did so much better. Thanks for the great tip! I am now nervous about actually doing the cake. I have never had much luck with the character cakes. I always have issues with the outlining part. Hopefully that will be a bit eaiser this time around. I have one last (hopefully) question for you all...Say I made the cake today and froze it so all I have to do next week is just ice it. What do I have to do to freeze it and how long does it need to thaw before I can ice it? You all have been such a tremendous support system. Thank you all.
