Bah.

Note to self: stop trying to make amazing-looking cakes. They will never be as good as in your head. Your kitchen is not big enough, and your tools rubbish. You cannot make good enough satin icing. Stick to what you know and you'll stop being disappointed.

The icing I made yesterday evening, which was pretty much perfect, ended up drying out overnight and then I ran out halfway around the cake (it was too dry to merely place on top and mould over the edges, I had to do the top first and then the sides...) so half of the sides are just covered in the buttercream I used as filling.

Sod.

Ah well. It's the thought that counts, right?
