I have been decorating for a few months now, but I still have a ton to learn. I have a problem with getting the nice sharp edges on either a circle or a square cake. I would appreciate any tips, tricks or advice on how to get that professional looking cake.
also, what tools would you use?

Thank you

Crusting buttercream, hot spatula, viva paper towels, fondant many options.

I highly recommend "The Art of Perfecting Buttercream" DVD by Sharon Zambito. Great and easy to follow instructions. thumbs_up.gif

Good advice here for all kinds of coverings and shapes, hope that helps. I would also recommend getting Planet Cake book.

Get Sharon Zambito's (sugarshack on CC) DVD "Perfecting The Art of Buttercream"'s helped LOTS of us with just what you are struggling with!

Here's a link to her website.

Sharon's dvd is wonderful. If you are looking for something immediate and free try checking out Edna's videos. I love her videos!
