Thanks again for all the help. I think my cake turned out alright. 😀
This is exactly the thread I needed, as I am making a monster high cake as well. So thank you all!!  You mentioned using a template for the skull, where do I get one, or how do I make my own? This is the part of cake decorating that gets me the most...LOL. I figured there was some secret computer program people were using to get all the awesome details and designs on the cakes. There is NO WAY I could free hand anything like it. Im far from an artist. Any and all help is...
Thank you so much for the tips! It's a beautiful cake. I'm going to be doing the stencil in hot pink, at brides request. I think it will be so pretty. Stacking on site is a great idea. I thought that was the way to go. I'll be using your 3 piece method. Lol! Thanks again! The bride purchased the rhinestones on eBay...fairly cheap from what I hear. 😃

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. I typically use buttercream. Is that okay for a chocolate cake? Should I use ganache? Chocolate buttercream? Helppppp!! LOL! Thanks SO much!!! 
I'm new at the cake decorating thing, but eager to learn. When making figures for cakes, numbers for top tier on bday cakes, how do I decide what to use? When is the approiate use of fondant, gumpaste, and all the other stuff? I'm freaking out...lol. Oh, and what is the product that when applied looks like glitter?Thanks SOOO much!Tara
