Thanks for the encouragement! I'm so glad I listened to you both instead of my husband ;) I fixed it and it looked perfect. I for some reason always feel like once it's on the cake, you can't go back. I think I need to loosen up and know that mistakes will happen, it's just a matter of knowing how to fix them! anyway, thanks again!  :)
I'm doing a cake for my friend's daughter's birthday tomorrow. I volunteered to do it and am not charging her. It was supposed to be the easiest cake ever - Plain purple cake with no decorations and a pink border. Easy enough! Well, somehow I didn't realize until I went to pipe the stupid border that my icing is too wet! The border is droopy and looks absolutely horrible! My husband says it looks "a little droopy" but not too bad to a cake layman. I'm mortified! So my...
That stinks, but thanks for the info. It's so frustrating!! I'll try the recipe suggested above. Thanks again!
Hi all, I'm looking for a MMF recipe that'll work well in a really humid climate (Mississippi)...there are so many out there and I need one that I know will work.

Hi ladies! Can someone tell me how to do this beautiful cake? Done by Firefly India. If you scroll down its the mint green cake with gold rubbed off and sugar flowers on top. It looks like she painted on the gold and then rubbed it off in places after it dried? I love this look and want to practice it! Thanks! http://www.wedmegood.com/vendors/profile/Firefly-India-131
Thank you!!! I actually ordered it last night and it's already shipped. So excited to experiment with it! Is there a learning curve? The youtube videos (of course) make it look so simple!
I just found a thread from a few weeks ago comparing the two...I commented on it so it's been bumped up, but here's the link just in case...it seems that cake lace is definitely better!   http://cakecentral.com/t/768087/cake-lace-or-sugarveil
I came across this shop on Etsy and just wanted to be sure it's the same product before I order....free shipping!!! It seems to be the same, but y'all said you cannot order anywhere in the US...just wanted to be sure!   http://www.etsy.com/shop/EasySugarLace#
