I just got this off ebay, hasn't made in the mail yet. There is no instructions and no faceplate. This is the only pan I have that has one. Can you decorate the face without the faceplate and it still look good?

I just wanted to say thank you. I really like these cakes done in fondant. This was the first time I ever saw one done in fondant. Love it.
You're very welcome.
