Wow. Knowing this is your first & the lack of good tools, that is really an awesome job. Seriously.
I personally think fondarific is the easiest for covering cakes. It's very flexible & doesn't tear easily. It's Very forgiving.
Ok, Ok.  I just want to step in for a wee moment.   Honestly, had you been a newbie, everyone here would have told you how cute this cake is.  They would have showered you with compliments on one of your first cakes and encouraged you with some of the same constructive criticism.     Because you stated you had been in business for over a year, the criticism came in a different form.  People expect more from someone in business than a hobbyist.     I'm sure it...
