    We have got to go back and get one of those! What about cloning a house -friendly ankylosarus that could tenderize meat, pulverize vegatables and walk the kids to school.

    Ankylosaurus does indeed kick the others out of the ring. Imagine, you could saddle him up and ride him while getting a back massage from his tail...unless he decided to wack you over the head with it

    As it appears that we both have the same tastes in girls and guys, how can we not be friends?

    It is Fondant, but it is a recipe that I adapted for a simpler process.
    Buttercream Icing (Stiff Consistency)
    1 cup solid white vegetable shortening
    1 tsp of flavoring (Almond, Vanilla, etc)
    2 Tbsp of milk or water
    4 cups of powder sugar
    1 Tbsp of meringue powder

    Take about a cup of this (color it however you wish), pour a couple of Tbsp of corn syrup in (I haven't perfected the science of it yet), then keep adding the powder sugar until it is a good workable consistency (not too sticky). As you roll it out (on wax paper) keep coating your rolling pin with the Powder Sugar (PS) and sprinkle powder sugar over the rolled out icing just as you would if you were making pie crust. Then lay it on your cake. You can then use a knife to cut away and remove any icing that you don't want (i.e. cutting it into shapes). IT is VERY workable. You can even splice or blend two pieces together once it is on the cake.
