Keep in mind when you watch Edna, that she is a SUPERB decorator with years of experience. Let me know how your next two cakes go, ok?

Find a technique that will work for YOU!
Next, be ready for a lot of practice, mess ups, hmmmm, this one looks great! I will do another one Oh no!! What did I do wrong? Mm seems like this is the best way. Yes, I've got it now. I love this technique. Someone else does it differently, but this method works best for me.
Next, even more practice and patience in letting the cakes set and your bc crust. You may have to start a day in advance on something if it takes a long time for your bc to crust. You might have to alter your recipe and add less liquid?
I crumb coat all my cakes. I love working with them cold! I did not know the benefit, until I tried it. Also once you crumb coat a cake, you should never disturb the Crumb Coat. You need to use more frosting, you can always remove what you don't need.
