Well, this was a learning experience. My BC would not crust so the Melvira method just wasn't happening. My top tier slid off the cake board as I was putting it on the cake (tin foil problem), so in this pic there is NO board. The fondant checkerboard I originally made (painted) were too small so I redid them as I was putting the cake together at 3 AM. The sign broke and I had to redo it too. Then my boys were so excited they couldn't keep their fingers off it - can you tell? LOL. I do like it though.
