AI have to make a 3 tiered chocolate cake April 13. Can I use any type of cake? Do you have to use dowels? I have never tried fondant, I want to use it but need a good recipes. The icing you can buy at the store just don't work or look light and fluffy enough. What consistently should the icing be, need a good recipes for that to. Should I freeze the cake a day ahead? Then decorate the of? How long will the sugar flowers stay good?
