Thanks everyone for the help! I was able to recover and conceal the blemishes with my scroll work and roses. I love the link for the cake trick and the cake Spackle! Definitely will be trying these tricks for my next cakes!
I did pipe a dam for each layer, but when crumb coating, I tried to make sure everything was even and smooth. Is it going to ruin this cake if I take the fondant off and give it a go again? I definitely don't have the time for re-baking the layers. Also, should the fondant be thicker? It was rolled to the recommended thickness, but it just seems so flimsy?
I'm desperate.... I have this small wedding cake I'm working on for this weekend. I'm using Satin Ice fondant for the first time, and so far I'm nothing but frustrated.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
I was hoping to avoid using Wilton (the smell of it is awful), but I think at this point it's my only option. Michael's here I come! Thanks for the help!
Hi everyone!I've been lurking on here for a little while, reading and trying to absorb from the wealth of knowledge that everyone contributes. I feel I'm backed into a corner. I'm making my first "sold" cake, for delivery this Sunday morning (I'm a cupcake gal, so this is a big deal for me). I'm attempting to make cartoonish gumpaste flowers (daisies, pansies, small filler flowers, etc). I purchased a premade gumpaste called "Bakels". I made leaves on Tuesday night and...
