[quote="specialtycakecreations"]I am sorry. This is the cake I am talking abouthttp://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AflfyNYxsQY/SdQHV_ak-TI/AAAAAAAALQQ/rEWtSGK3A00/s400/002474+Golf+Birthday+Cake.jpgThat is the cake I guessed You were talking about. I have also dipped spaghetti in icing to coat it. A little hard to work with initially though.
Great ideas caymancakes.

(I don't have time to browse 12,000 pages of pics!). (I have a 3-D Tiger in my pics, but I wasn't happy with the shape.)
I have had problems with hot pink MMF tearing. However the purple MMF I made (same recipe) and covered a larger tier with, was fine. Is it something about the pink/red color, or just the fact that you need to add more color than with other shades?Working in extra shortening has proved to be a good solution for me. That and trimming fast so that you don't have too much weight pulling. I also keep my cake almost flat on the counter until I am doing the final stage of...
