So I learned a really big lesson with this one. I decided yesterday morning to clean my carpets. BIG MISTAKE! Then later when I decided to start making this cake, the cake and frosting were more moist than usual and the fondant was "shiney". I dug around in my fridge trying to figure out the problem (thinking there was something wrong with the fridge) and then I wondered if the air was still humid from the recent rain and then it dawned on me-the carpet! Aaaahhhhhh! The cake still turned out darling but it was a bit messier than what I am happy with and so so difficult to put together. Arg! There has been maybe only one or two other times I felt like throwing the cake out the window during decorating. :) On the up-side, I love how the zebra turned out. I think if I ever have a girl, I will do one whole wall zebra print.
