icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif Great job!! That is a really cute cake! Love it! Your fondant isn't perfectly smooth... not that mine ever is. Try trimming the sides of your cake with a very sharp knife after it has settled over night. And remember that smooth buttercream = smooth fondant. Great job! thumbs_up.gif

Mug-a-bug, i will try that on my next one, my crumb coat was not very smooth! i covered the cake twice and had to start again because the fondant kept tearing. but practice makes perfect!
