shirley, i did two of them last night. i think i did everything you said NOT to do! lol, it was a learning experience, and i am determined to do it again, and to get it right. one of my issues is that the store was out of mylar, so the plastic i got was too thin. secondly, the chocolate on one of them bloomed...(i havent much experience with tempering chocolate) and i tried to peel half of it off and replace it and so it waved...i suppose it wasnt smart to do it for the first time on such a huge cake (12"). the five inch cake was faster, but still, i moved my hands over it-oops! and got the waves again, but this one didnt bloom. i am determined to get it because at least even though i saw soooooooooo many flaws in it, everyone at the party was very impressed . i personally am impessed with the concept...but not so much with my work on this cake. oh well...try and try again huh?
