I was sooo bored Monday night that I decided to practice my cake decorating skills, since I am always to busy and dont have time. I came up with this 2 tier 7 and 5 inch fondant cake and brushed with luster dust . I think it is soooo cute and I am quite happy with it. Even though after decorating this little cake I encountered some minor problems...but hey, I'm learning. Hope you guys like it as much as I do..inspiration came from many cakes I seen here on CC

Linda122....what I have heard is that you can either directly buttercream on the fondant or you can apply press n seal to the dummy before you apply buttercream, that way you can simply peal the plastic off. For fondant you can do the press n seal, spray it with water or apply a thin coat of piping gel. I simply sprayed it with water. And to clean it, I heard that you simply run it under hot water and everything will come off. Hope this helps icon_smile.gif
