Well, for the life of me I could not get the ganache to stop splitting! The ganache I made for under the fondant was perfect... but for the topping I had no luck. So checkerboard on the top tier it was :)
I ended up getting Cake Art fondant, because I wasn't paying attention at the shops.... what a nightmare that stuff is to work with It's sticky and shiny and just yuk in my opinion.
But all in all, I think it turned out alright for an amateur cake!!!
