but I need some help. I constantly have problems when smoothing square cakes. When I go to smooth the sides the cake always starts showing. Any suggestions on how I can correct this?

Maybe this will help, but I've also seen indydebi demonstrate this but I could not find it! Maybe send her a PM and she could help you too.

Neato~! I'm gonna have to try that. I'm relatively happy with my corners but often get that one corner that has a bit of excess and won't sharpen when I'm smoothing it with the viva. I'll have to try this technique. Thanks guys.

lol Bossy, I had to go see the video, and it took me a second to realize that it was sped up a bit. At first I thought, "wow, look how fast the hands and fingers are moving."

Don't I wish I was that fast! I have also seen a vidoe from Anie2 where she describes what she is doing, but can't put my hands on it at the moment.
