I rolled out another piece of fondant and covered up my deed. Not pretty but a bit better than the starting point. Forget how this looks, it is about the fondant.

I'll have to blindfold my guests. The fondant tastes nice and is very easy to work with. I'm not a fondant expert as you can plainly see but I'm going to try making it again on a more successful cake
