Our granddaughter loved this cake but it took some effort to pull it off. The directions aren't clear for making the decorators. We basically used thei picture for a guide. Hardest part was getting the wings to stay on the decorators. We used fondant to build the decorators. A garlic press was used to make the hair for the decorators. Push fondant through the garlic press and used a tooth pick to scrap across the garlic press outside to draw the "hair" together and pull it off the press. Worked great! Decorating the dress was easy following the stated directions.
