BEST way EVER to frost buttercream cakes! Fab video to get perfectly smooth & level cakes (top, side, every which way). Do without flipping: frost top, put cake board on top (tape a piece of cellophane to cake board to prevent sticking). Level, refrigerate, frost sides like photo.
cake board cut to be sword shaped tylose glue to secure squares, long piece of black fondant rolled into a thin log and attached it all around the sides to make it look more polished....go over whole sword with vanilla extract to give shine and clean off excess powder! I let dry for 2 days
