Woops, forgot to say about the jam.  I was taught the apricot syrup method of attaching fondant to ganache, but honestly I'm so lazy that I use water, just brush on sparingly (so your fondant doesn't get too wet).  Saves time.

 

In the end, you find what you are comfortable with and what works for you.  So nice to have access to the wealth of information and experience on this forum.

that kind you everone for all your help, I found the fondant didn't stick great so I'll stick with the apricot syrup from now in coz I've had better luck with that previously. I managed to get the cake done on minimal sleep, with a bushfire 1/2 a km from my house and finishing it right down to the last minute (was still in my pj's when my family started arriving) it wasn't perfect but everyone loved it and I now have a few cake orders from my family including my sisters wedding cake ahhhh she wants a 3 tier wedding cake which I am buying her as a gift but now she loves the way my cakes taste so much she'd rather I just made it, I've said no a few times but she keeps insisting on it! Also have a bday cake and kitchen tea cake to make. my sister has been showing my cake off to all her friends and saying how good it tasted and said if I had more confidence and didn't get so stressed she could get me heaps of orders, was so good to hear as I was extremely stressed about people tasting my cake as I'd never made mud cake before except for Xmas cupcakes but it all worked out and I have so much more confidence now! Thank you all again for your help and um sure I'll be back![IMG]400

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

Thank you very much I am very happy with how she turned out, took me a couple of nights to make but worth the effort.
it's funny when I think back to two years ago when I couldn't not over cook a packet cake and now I have quite a few great recipes under my belt and even calculated my own vanilla recipe which I love coz I couldn't find one that was perfect.
I plan on opening a cup cake shop when my babies are a bit older, something to look forward to but for now I'm a hobby Baker enjoying my time with my kids icon_smile.gif
