I have a 6" cake with 3 fondant figures that will stand on top of the cake. The MOB will be transporting the cake 2 hours away. Two questions:   Should I place the people on the cake or have her do it when she arrives?

I have seen lots of stunning cakes on here with photos that are to dark, cake to far away, or the picture isn't sharp enough to see the details of the cake. I have been using Photoscape for several years now and its FREE on from cnet.;1   You can also find it by going to: and search for Photoscape.   You can do all kinds of things with color, brightness,...
I'm sorry that you feel like you need to refund at all; you don't. I agree with mskerrih. I would make the decision that you did what you were asked to do, AFTER the deadline, and go in there with that attitude. Take the flyer, the ruler and ask what the problem REALLY  is and see what happens. At least then she will have to come up with a valid reason for sending them back.

I already made a batch of butter-cream from this bag of powdered sugar so I felt confident that wasn't the problem. I was able to save this batch by heating some of it up to the point of bubbling then I poured it into my mixer, turned it on and walked! When I came back it was as smooth as silk!!   Thanks for your reply!
My icing is gritty. I know that its not the powdered sugar. Its a peanut butter icing. Any idea what can I do to fix it?   Frosting 1 1/2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature 2 cups powdered sugar, divided 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4 cup chilled heavy whipping cream  
Yeah...i agree with Doritta. Wilton rose cutter and dry on extra large flower cup or shape aluminum foil to fit your size needs.
