This cake was for a birthday. They wanted it to look like a present. I had trouble with the bow. I didn't let the the parts set out to harden long enough and I ran out of time and just had to put it together. grrr... but it came out ok. You can see some of the imperfections on this one. The chocolate fondant was a bit difficult to work with. I don't know if it was the chocolate or what, but it was just not smoothing out.
