Ok, I don't have any problems smoothing round cakes, it's the square and retangular that I can't see to get. The corners, are impossible for me and the top looks like it has little gullys....
Any advise or technique you can share with me.
There are two articles here that might help you out:

and the Upside-Down Method: http://www.cakecentral.com/article6-Upside-Down-Icing-Technique-for-Perfectly-Smooth-Icing.html
HEre's some pics on how I do my corners.
