Why don't you just upload it to the Photo Gallery instead of making a thread about it? icon_smile.gif

Next time, put your cake in the fridge or freezer for about 15 minutes before applying your fondant so that the buttercream has had a chance to chill and set up. That way, you can work your fondant smooth without having the buttercream squish around under your fondant.

We learn by experience, so don't feel bad! icon_smile.gif

oh ok, thanks for the info, i did put alot of frosting on it, but when we cut it you really couldn't see alot, but the fondant was soft, i wondered if it absorbed it. but it was lumpy,
