Have you read the ingredients of fondant lately?? Not to mention pepperoni!!!
I did it last September for DD1, and I'll be doing it next May for DD2. I insisted the design must be simple....smooth iced buttercream with fresh or silk flowers, and I baked and froze the layers ahead of time. We did 6-9-12-15 inch tiers of carrot cake iced and filled with Edna's crusting cream cheese icing. It was simple and beautiful and special because MOM made it!! I am just a hobbyist with a modest kitchen and it was totally doable. I had plenty of time to...

Bluehue, you are so going to get me in trouble....I promised DH that I'd try no new recipes for a month, 'cause he's training for a marathon, but now I've GOT to try these awesome sounding cakes!!!! Thanks so much for posting.

SugarShack's technique involves using a bench scraper and turntable, followed by Viva, then computer paper. You won't believe the difference!
