    I have no idea what "crumb ice" means either!

    The antenna looks like jelly snakes?

    Crumb icing or a crumb coat is masking (covering) the cake with a very thin layer of your icing as a first coat to keep the crumbs of the cake from getting mixed up in your final layer of icing.
    The crumb coat will likely be patchy and thin in some places (it's even ok if it is see through). It just seals the cake so it makes the outside coat 'clean'.

    Haha no the antennas are a yellow snake cut in half lengthwise
    And as explained above crumb ice or as we call it 'dirty ice' (we like to watch Cake Boss ) is just a thin crappy layer of icing to catch all the crumbs so they don't show in the final layer

    The burning question! We cut and then filled. Because I had a template to guide the cutting it just seemed easier. We just used skewers to hold the layers together.

    I'm pretty sure it was yesterday. Almost positive in fact! (She is still high maintenance, too!)

    Thanks! It's probably the best I have done without DF's intervention. He has the eye for detail and usually can't stand watching me work and so takes over, but must have been too tired on Saturday night! I can't wait to see what you make your DS!

    Definitely butter cream. Sandwich them together, set in the fridge then cut. Then cover with a crumb coating (a thin layer for butter cream) set in fridge again then decorate.

    Good luck
