I have only used sugarveil, but looked into the candy lace product. Their website says that it doesn't go yellow like sugarveil does and that it stays pliable.   Depending on what you are doing you might want it to stay pliable, or you might want it to harden like sugarveil does. Other than that, the only difference would be the price. I looked very quickly, so you may find better/different prices, but I found the candy lace to be about 40% to 100% more expensive. I...
I have made this recipe, which everyone loves, like a hundred times! http://cakecentral.com/a/scratch-moist-strawberry-cake   To make it raspberry, substitute raspberry puree and raspberry jello. I did this once and it was amazing, the color is really nice too.
this doesn't answer all your questions but it is a step by step video on applying ganache under fondant: http://cakecentral.com/b/tutorial/use-ganache-under-fondant   Good luck!
 Hey All, sorry for my tardy reply. Yes its a large drop flower tip, I will find the number later. An open star 1M is not the same. It is exactly as MommyMommy and some others mentioned, it's a loose rosette with a smaller loose rosette (kind of incomplete, more like a swirl) piped on top of it with a large drop flower tip. I only use IMBC, since I know that's the next question. We published my IMBC recipe in volume 2 issue 2 of Cake Central Magazine. It's pomegranate...
That sounds like an awesome cake!   I'm not sure if this will help, but here is a tutorial for making a spinning cake stand, which I know isn't exactly what you want" http://cakecentral.com/b/tutorial/diy-motorized-cake-stand-tutorial   I think this video is probably the technique you would need though: https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=2004246186679   She is an amazing decorator and a Cake Central user: http://cakecentral.com/u/649887/waybeyondcakes
How will you be using the piping gel?   It's very easy to color and pipe with. As far as taste, it's basically tasteless.  Good luck.
you can make your ganache thicker by using more chocolate.   As for how much, you should just test it out, I would probably add an extra 4 ounces, depending on how much thicker you want it.
 I do not want to start the discussion about copying cake designs, this is not the place for it and it has been talked about at length before. I recommend that you start fresh and push yourself as an artist. I know every single cake I have ever made, I step back and say, "I could have done that better". SInce you made those cakes, your creativity and skill have probably grown, so use that to make even more awesome cakes. But... No one owns a cake design, any cake design,...
 I would definitely use the spray glaze. It is not water soluble, just like the confectioner's glaze in a bottle. It will not make the image bleed, as the image is water soluble color! I use CK confectioner's glaze with the thinner and a paint brush, but I guess you are using this:http://www.countrykitchensa.com/shop/cake-decorating-supplies/pme-edible-glaze-spray-clear/38/596/150/638616/ If you want the image to be shiny, put it on first, then spray. Good luck!
you can upload her cake to the first time cakes gallery and of course mention in the description that she is a child who made her first cake.   http://cakecentral.com/g/a/86/first-time-cakes/   That is so exciting that you can share cake decorating together. Have fun and keep posting your cakes!
