Hi edna... i'll try again by making my icing stiffer... and trying tiggy2's suggestion of squeezing more icing out.. if those don't work.. i guess i'll really have to get that tip!!
KieslerKakes thanks for the video.. it did help quite a bit.. i saw her adding more frosting in the centre of the frosting before adding the frosting in the centre.. so hopefully can try that trick as well to see if it works.
cupcakeshoppe.. i haven't tried using SMBC yet... but if everything else doesn't work i'll definitely try it!!
Thanks all.. i'll have to try all the tips and hopefully it works!! wish me luck
