I love this forum!! I am new to cake decorating. So far, I have tried some projects probably way too much for my skill level. I wanted to make a 3d boot cake and a 3d roman candle. I learned really fast about dowelling when they sunk in on one cake, and about leveling the base better when the top 2 layers fell on the floor on the other. Now, how do I cover them without tearing the fondant? The cakes were 5 - 8 inch rounds tall and the fondant tore everytime I tried to cover it. (It was homemade mmf on one and the other was cmff on the other). Thanks for your help.
for a cake that tall and skinny i would do a wrap and have the seam to the back, or the side of the boot and cover it with some "cording"
I have done them like that too!..I have one I call frankencake!
