Hello Scotland!  I'd recommend the wealth of free information available on Youtube and CakeCentral.  I am assuming that you want specific fondant figure tutorials instead of buttercream.    Type in the search box:  Christmas cupcakes or dog cupcakes, or skull cupcakes or ....anything + cupcakes. You'll see thousands of images, click on the ones you like, go to that person's website, and quite often you will find free tutorials.
anamarlosweet~~Those look fine.  I think you are expecting "commercial perfection" from a homemade product. If you have purchased linen, you will find a saying, "this is a natural fabric and the minor imperfections are a reflection of that natural fabric" (in other words, it's a good thing).   We don't know what kind of "chocolate" you are using.  Different types of candy melts produce different results.  If you are using "real" chocolate with cocoa butter, that is a...
San Diego Cake Show   ANNUAL CAKE SHOW - March 21 & 22, 2015   http://www.sandiegocakeclub.com/events.html   Images of past shows are on youtube and google images.  Here's an example:   https://www.google.com/search?q=san+diego+cake+show&client=firefox-a&hs=z8r&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=fflb&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=tLF8VPjDBM_4igKxu4HoAg&ved=0CGUQsAQ&biw=1016&bih=625   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdpClCCOeXs   * * * * * *...
It is so fun to see so much enthusiasm!  Carry on!
Take 'em anyway.  Just because you don't like them doesn't mean other people won't like them.    I just made up a new recipe of banana cake and peanut butter mousse found on this site.  I LOVED both.  My friend LOVED both.  My niece gagged just at the description because I mentioned cream cheese, peanut butter and bananas as part of the description.  Obviously, people have different tastes.   Oh...and by the way....when you take them in tomorrow---KEEP YOUR MOUTH...
On behalf of the many, many darling people on this site, "You are most welcome!"  Your wedding cake is glorious!   Well done, swear words and all. 
MBAlaska~~LOVE the 1M swirl on top of a 1M swirl (roses on roses photo above) with the leaves.  When I saw the expanded photo I did a "DOH! [smack on my forehead] moment".  It has never occurred to me to do the 1M swirl "rose" with 2 different colors.   THANKS FOR POSTING!!!!   (Tonight or tomorrow I'm baking a double or triple recipe of the banana pudding cake you posted earlier.   My entire home smells like overripe bananas right now because I've been letting them get...
This technique is called pressure piping.  Although I do not do this, I'm fascinated by the technique and skills of what can be created by a master royal icing artist.  Here's a book currently available on Amazon:   http://www.amazon.com/Pressure-Piping-Inspiration-Lesley-Herbert/dp/1853918504
Don't know.  But--I would assume "not enough".  Since I hobby bake, I'm really lazy about keeping track of what a recipe yields.  Since I love having leftover frosting in the freezer, I always make more than I need and freeze the rest for the next time I bake.  One of the biggest things I struggled with the first 2 years of cake decorating was having enough frosting.   I would always have too little and finally got so sick of making it twice that I now make a LOT extra. ...
You're very welcome.
