My husband's cousin just barely called and asked me to do her wedding cake on the 5th of July. She wants a sqare cake with rounded corners covered in fondant. How do you get rounded corners on a square cake? Just carve it or is that just something that naturally happens when you put fondant on a square cake? Any tips on putting fondant on square cakes would also be greatly appreciated. I have never really done much with covering with fondant. I am a little nervous about trying it on square cakes with so little experience.

It depends on what she means by rounded, the football, fishing and 3 tier hexagon cakes in my pics all had sharp corners and edges before I covered them in MMF, after they are much softer....I would ask the bride what she means by rounded exactly. Bring her here and check out galleries with her

I have seen several links on here about covering square cakes with fondant. There is a you tube about it. I think that when you cover the cake with fondant, it will naturally be kind of rounded. The hard part is getting a nice sharp edge. Start by covering the corners first and the work the sides.

I have also done a square cake and the edges turned out sort of rounded because I didn't sharpen them.
