My question was not what you bake at but more have you watced your temperature guage. As an ex-HRAC technician it is well know that ovens of the gas type have a 15 degree swing in calibration or 350 + or - 15 degrees when your oven is set at 350.

Just curious if this was something you had...

It is a wedding cake. It is to resemble their invitations. I'd post a picture but I can't figure out how?
Has any one put royal icing through a paint gun for a stucco look on fondant or should I just stick to sponging?
