This was my first-EVER time covering a cake in fondant. Be gentle! LOL! I quilted the sides with an impression mat, but quickly discovered that's really hard to do on a round cake. The diamond impression tool is now on order! I made my own MMF & flavored it strawberry to match the strawberry cake & icing. The big top rose is buttercream. My sister was thrilled, & I learned lots of valuable lessons!
