hi, i used the 3d egg pan, and i used 1/4 cup of lard (shortening) 1/4 cup of butter, and 200g of icing sugar, and flavouring. what are you supposed to do with the paper? peel it off, slide it off? i dont know!

He looks terrific! You let the frosting crust, then gently rub it. You don't actually cover the cake with the paper-just hold it in your hand and rub the frosting. Great cake!
