Thank you very much, I have just down loaded the whole book.I don't know how I would learn without my cc buddies. You are all Brill....I am going to have some fun doing this.
I want to make different types ( flavours ) of small cakes, for my daughters wedding on May 1st, this year.Can you use store bought cakes that the date of 'use before' is after the date of the wedding, and cover with fondant now.

I have made some cup cakes for my grandaughter and piped buttercream swirls on top then placed fondant stars in an upright position on top.I made these in the evening and in the morning the stars had dropped flat.Do you have to use cmc in the fondant, or have you any idea why they did not stay upright?Any advice would be really appriciated.Thanks
