The major issue being that, IT CRACKED, like a thousand times! I just stuck it back together with royal icing and moved on because there was no more time to make another one. I barely charged anything for this because of those cracks. My friends who ordered it really didn't mind the cracks that much, so it all worked out in the end. One good thing is that I have learned from my mistakes now. After alot of critical thinking I've figured out a fool proof plan of how to make one of these without the breakage.
Many thanks to my friends the Alzaim's for your support and your business :-)
