AHi, I'm new at working with fondant. I worked with it twice before, months ago. This is a Joann's dummy cake. It's actually styrofoam, it's horrible! Don't worry, I'm it offering fondant for sale until Imget much, much better. I'm just practicing!
C&C appreciated - this is a learning time for me!
And yes, I screwed up the elephant cake by using water to,try to,get the powdered sugar off. LOL! Duh.

ASo it looks really good!!! Here's the thing. You're practicing on dummy cakes which is great. But they are perfect. They are already level and they have sharp edges.
When you're working with real cake those clean edges and level icing are up to you to create :). The way the fondant looks largely depends on that. So try to practice on real cakes too :)
AYes, you are right! And they are a big huge pain to get even and level! I'm going to do that this week. Thank ou! Nancy
