This was for a girl's 18th birthday...just dinner with family. They told me to do whatever I wanted, and I'd been wanting to try an animal print. I think it would have been great had I gotten the colors much darker & spaced the spots farther apart. Someone who saw the picture of the cake thought it was supposed to be giraffe print...LOL!!! Oh well, next time I'll know better. To make the print smooth, I piped the spots with a large tip and then pressed them flat with a paper towel & a fondant smoother.
