So after I did a really horrible job icing my last cake I thought I would steal Mona's fondant recipe and try that. I had some similar issues with it tearing a little, but I am a lot happier with it over the icing job lol. I need to get myself a rolling pin too:rolleyes: that's what all those lines are because i used a pampered chef cylinder thing. I also had some trouble with the brown, apparently i can't mix colour properly. It was this ugly barf looking colour and i had to add chocolate icing until it turned brown and then it became kinda gooey to work with so I hope next time i have better luck with that.
and for those who need a refresher on the icing cake:p
