I'm with you, daddysrl314 - my fondant always slides down. The only way I can make it stay in place is to cover the shapes as they will sit, which means fondant over the top and a struggle to fit the fondant to the taper as it goes down to the board. But, it can be done! I usually put a separate rim around the top of the pot that sticks up a bit and use toasted cake crumbs as dirt if needed. I hope someone will come along and tell us both how to make it stay in place with the "upside down" covering like in that amazing tutorial.
