Perfect! This was my first time using a cake topper, so I wondered if it would be difficult to get it off of its backing onto the cake. It couldn't have been easier! I followed the instructions and it separated easily from the backing as soon as I rolled it over the edge of the counter. It's firm enough to easily hold it by its sides like a "U" and place the center of the topper on the center of the cake. Then gently smooth it into the frosting to secure it. I added piping to finish the edges. Here's a photo of the finished cake. Edible Cake Topper is a great company. I highly recommend them.
