Hi everyone ... I have been lurking for sometime and recently signed up. You all do amazing amazing work and I hope to be half that good some day.
I am brand new to cake making/decorating I love it and enjoy it so much but have only been doing a few at home and for friends.
Anyway my question is .. I am making my first 2 tier cake for a party and it will also be my first time using MMF or any fondant for that matter.
Any absolute must do/know tips you have for a beginner who has had no training?
Also do you think I should just go with buttercream and smooth it out like crazy then decorate or should I try the fondant. I want the cake to be clean cut looking (Its a chevron style cake).
Another question- do I decorate then assemble there or should I put it together then take it to the location, I have done a 2 tier at home and didnt use dowels (it was a really small cake tho) but I hear you have to use those .. I am sooo confused and nervous about this and I just want it to look good.
Please please please I need help and I will greatly appreciate any help you can give.
Sorry to be so desperate .. but I could use some guidance lol Thank you guys!!
