I think it turned out well.  That's the first cake I made and I thought mine turned out OK.  I read this site everyday.  Haven't posted any pics yet.  Most of my cakes are copycats of someone elses on this site and while I think they are pretty good for a beginner, they are no way as good as the ones you guys make.  Glad you got it done and again it looks great.

So I finally found the pic in your gallery.  I don't normally spend time in the galleries so it took me a bit.   I was looking at some of your cakes along the way and find it funny/ironic that you can make such incredible fondant cakes and figures, so elaborate and beautifully designed and put together yet have trouble with the rose swirl which is like the simplest buttercream piping technique.  You did a great job with it.  You have so much talent,  you shouldn't let piping intimidate you.

Ha ha!  Thank you.  Yes, I do let the piping intimidate me.  I have never covered a cake with fondant before either...I tried once and it was not a pretty thing so I stick to smoothing buttercream and doing the fondant/gum  paste decor.  I think it's because I seem to have more control when doing fondant decorations.  I get a bag and it never flows out smoothly and even something as simple as the piped rose technique has me second-guessing.  I think everyone else's looks better than mine.  Ah well...at least no ragged edges on these! 

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!
