Oh thank you so much, that video and your advice is awesome..yay, now I know what I'm doing
I don't have fondant, I need to make a 3 tiered cake tonight, so, how do I do it? Before, I have tried to frost the cake ahead of time and stack them, but that was a mess because I had to hold the sides of the cake. The next time, I tried to stack the cake and then frost the tiers, but, it took me forever to make it look nice because I would scratch or hit the top or sides of the other frosted layers....so, I was continuously re-frosting and re-frosting.Is there any way...

I just made almost the same exact thing last night. I used the pre-made gumpaste and marshmallow fondant to make roses.

I figured out that, that in particular bag of sugar, the powdered sugar was (for some strange reason) full of hard sugar...
Walmart won't do this, but my local grocery store here in Vegas sells the icing from the bakery. A cake decorator told me about it. I just ask ahead of time, if the bakery will sell the icing by itself, and some will, some won't. I got 2 lbs of frosting for $5. So, it's worth a try, and saves a ton of time.
I use Dunken Hines Moist cake mix for every cake I make and everyone compliments how moist the cake is, I have put fondant on it too, and it held up..
