I'm trying my first pillow cake tomorrow, and the tut. I got from here showed just a nicely rounded top, no buttons. I think I know how to carve out for the button, but I don't know how to get the puckered effect from where the button pulls down. Is that carved as well, or kind of pressed down with the fondant and icing? Any help would be so appreciated. Thank you!

I've only done square pillows but I would definitely carve a few small grooves to make it look like the button was pulling down....jmo
