Ok...I did this cake yesterday and today and delivered it tonight. I am not 100% happy with it and really need some honest opinions and advice on how to improve. I was not happy with cutting my fondant with a pizza cutter...I hate the way it turnout out on the bottom edges. I know how I would do the stereo next time too.

This was very similar to a cake my customer emailed me from online.

I think it turned out cute! especially to only be your 4th cake!! I use a pizza cutter to trim fondant off after covering my cakes but i use a single edged razor or scissors to cut out decorations you might like those better. The only criticism i have is may want to make ur fondant for the numbers on top a bit thicker next time so they show up better. The more you do them the better you will get! HTH icon_smile.gif
