A theatre themed Comedy/Tragedy Cake for my partner's sister's birthday who is in Drama/Acting etc

My second fondant cake and first time ever using gumpaste (masks/flowers) modeled by hand.

8" Round Double Layer: Triple Sec White and Kahlua Chocolate cake with a Vanilla Buttercream chopped chocolate.

Iced in Black Buttercream Fondant (Buff Goldman) Accents of Red "Satin Ice" and Ivory Fondant.

Thank you to Texas_Rose for the advice given on painting the gumpaste

I'm curious what you thought of Duffs fondant. The cake is great.

I found it great, taste is delicious not too sweet distinct buttercream flavor. Didn't dry out at all when I was kneading/rolling or covering the cake (I'm not the faster of covers either lol)

Firms up nicely afterward but yet is still soft and moist when eaten. I'm not sure on the price compared to other fondants like Fondarific or Wilton but compared to the Satin Ice fondant it is twice as expensive for the same amount.
