Thanks for your reply, MBalaska! So, I ended up putting fondant decorations over the buttercream, which helped. I also have realized that I am a cake decorator, and not a cake designer...yet! This was my first cake that was fully designed by me, with minimal input. It stressed. me. out! No joke! Anyhow, it was done, she loved it, and it is now behind me! :o) Thanks for the encouragement, everyone!
