Are you using a crusting bc? If so the Melvira method, Viva method and Sugarshack method are all great!

Viva Method: http://www.cakecentral.com/article10-How-To-Create-Faux-Fondant-The-Paper-Towel-Method----Viva.html

Sugarshack's DVD can be purchased here and it is worth every penny: Sugaredproductions.com

Can't find the Melvira Method article...but you use a high density foam roller to smooth.

HTH!

Thank you for posting the Melvira Method, leily. Every time I clicked on the link it took me to a recipe for cream cheese pound cake? So that's why I didn't post it. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
