Made a two tier for daughters 2nd birthday. My second cake. Two tiers, each with 3 layers of cake. Fondant covered, fondant bow, stripes and polka dots. Chocolate flowers. I used just boxed Pillsbury cake, which tasted great.. but horrible to work with. Everything else was easy to work with, all though i wish I could have gotten the colored fondant thinner... a little more difficult to thin out.
