If you want to modify the CSS of the cart then you should :

Copy the widget-flyout-cart-style.css and 'open.png' file to your theme directory to modify the layout
eg wp-content/themes/YOUR_THEME/woocommerce-drop-down-cart-widget/widget-flyout-cart-style.css
and wp-content/themes/YOUR_THEME/woocommerce-drop-down-cart-widget/open.png

Reviews

Works but…

The arrow on the cart and checkout buttons are hardcoded into the plugin →. The plugin should take woocommerce’s mini-cart and make that drop down, but instead replaces it completely, which may or may not be blowing away some woocommerce functionality, we don’t know. I find this particular arrow quite ugly and some fonts don’t support it. If your font doesn’t have it, it will default to the browser core font (even uglier) and sometimes that symbol doesn’t exist even in the core font. I’d like to request that the arrow be removed and/or the button text be thrown into a settings field for the user to determine. Maybe they don’t want it to say Checkout but instead say RazzleMcDazzle. You never know.
