Well this cake was a learning experience! Firstly I did a FBCT and it was too thin and broke when I got it out of the freezer, theeeeeen when I was making the SMBC I had my butter in my mixing bowl and I though, 'oh I'll just scoop that out and do the meringue in that' so preceded to pour my hot egg whites/sugar into my buttery bowl, I had nooooooooo idea that it wouldn't form icon_redface.gif 10 minutes and aching wrist later I was like 'Eer where's my meringue icon_confused.gif ?' Googled it and went 'Duh!!'. My black fondant was really a dark green untill I'd used almost a whole pot of Wilton colouring! Anyway this is a lemon WASC torted into 4 layers with raspberry and the SMBC filling icon_smile.gif I love how smooth I got my cake with SMBC, I felt like such a pro!! icon_biggrin.gif
Thanks for looking icon_smile.gif

To look at it you'd never know you had all that trouble. I think it looks wonderful. Sorry it gave you such a fit, but the end result is great! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks guys icon_smile.gif
Grama_j, I don't know lol! I think it must have been the huge amounts of colouring I had to use! The fondant I buy is a very 'wet' and I have to add lots of flour to it, but I didn't add so much this time as I was just using it for decorations icon_biggrin.gif
Cake was a success! Melted in 5 mins of being taken out! Lol! So hot here *sigh icon_rolleyes.gif , the fondant was dripping and the little balls were sitting in puddles!
