ugggh. it's driving me crazy, and i am beating myself up over it. I did a wedding cake for this past weekend and on the bottom tier I did not line up the top of the stencil with the top of the cake, i did it from the bottom up on my first go around. I immediately saw my mistake, but with black royal, there was no fixing it. I was planning on putting that section at the back of the cake, but then my helping husband who was holding the stencil, pushed a bit too hard on the top and put a thumb dent in the top of the cake where the stencil was correct. So there goes that idea. I was struggling to find the best 'side' to put face forward. The top i got the orientation right, but then again there was a slight smear on one section. Thankfully that was able to be filled in with a paintbrush and put at the back. It wasn't a disaster in the rear at all, but the more i look at the photo, the more it just makes me cringe. i'm kicking myself for not trying out this particular stencil more throughly on a dummy before flying with it.
