I used a combo of a full batter of pound cake with a little regular cake batter mix in, like 1/2 the batter of a box mix to a full mix of pound cake.Sorry you've had so much trouble.
I purchased the small set of the Wilton Fondant letter cutters. I was using MMF and had a hard time getting the fondant out of the cutters. It took me an hour, but I finally got enough good letters to put on my dd 3rd bday cake. (It's in my pics) I did notice that as the MMF got harder they did come out a little easier. Has anyone used them before and should I let the MMF harden up a bit. Thanks in advance for any tips.Gail

The baby ate more MMF than she rolled out. Here is a link to the final...
cakeladyinri - I wish I had an image printer, it is on my wish list. keonicakes - Movie Passes are a great idea, I will sneak out to the theater tomorrow and get him some.vrmcc1 - I had not thought of letting the girls decorate the cake. I think that is a good idea! I will post a picture of the cake and a link to a picture of them decorating it. My poor Kitchen may never be the same after they are done with it. I have been so stressed this week from work. I could not...
Okay fellow cc'ers my hubbt turns 40 on Monday and has now decided he wants a cake. Which is fine, I am just in a rut for ideas. I need something simple as my dd's will want to help (6 and 3). Things that he likes: Disney, Pirates, Trading cards, Movies. If anyone knows of some links to pics of fairly simple designs, I would appreciate the help. I am pressed for time. TIAGail
