I agree.  they annoy me with the drama.  I think there's an awful lot of people behind the scenes getting the jobs completed.

you can make all the attachments ahead of time.  I store mine in plastic containers (Chinese takeout type) on wax paper dusted with corn starch, even layering them.  Do NOT refrigerate.  when you go to use them, use a stiff dry paint brush to dust them off and then apply with a dab of water, royal icing or icing.  The toppers you'll have to make that day so they are pliable to cover the cupcakes nicely.  I have fondant features made for cakes months in advance.  If, when...
