Rated 5 out of 5 by MelissaMc from Since this was my 3rd cake that I've ever made, I rated medium. It took me probably 12 hours total to make. But I'm getting better. The fondant was perfect by the 3rd try, (but because I had to pull it off 3 times, pulling off a little buttercream each time, then having to add more powdered sugar to stiffen it up again, it tasted 1000x better than any fondant I've ever eaten before). The daisy's would have been so much quicker to make if the cutters that came in the Wilton set made clean cuts. I had to clean up almost every one and tried so many different ways of cutting them. And with roughly 25 daisy's, that's 50 cuts. The technique that worked best was to use half and half gum paste / fondant. And to use lots of powdered sugar under, and have a little mat with Crisco spread on it. Then rub the cutter in crisco then make the cut. Make it so you can flip it over and press the gum paste / fondant mixture down into the mold, this really helped make cleaner edges, less trimming away flaws. Also, I had a hard time matching the orange color butter cream to the fondant. So I used a gum paste / fondant mix with in a bead border. The color matched perfectly. Everyone LOVED the cake. I'm sure if I was a little more experienced it would have taken a lot less time. But in the end it was worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bnoonan2395 from I'm a teenager and I found it quite simple! I didn't get the yellow sprinkles so I used pink, but other than that mine looks pretty much like the picture!! I defiantly recommend getting all the ready to use stuff. I tried to save a few bucks and get the mixes. Big mistake. It takes so much time and gets really messy. Next time the recipe calls for ready to use, that's what I'll get.
