Is there an easy way to trim cardboard circles with them being a mess?? My circles are slighty larger than my cakes, and when I use a boarder that is fine, but not with fondant. Any tips?? Mine all look 'raggedy' when I am done.
I just draw a circle (square) using the pan and go around it with a razor knife. Then cover it with contact paper or fancy foil. Once there is icing on the cake you won't be able to see the board.
once i get the cake on the board i cut it with sharp scissors all around. right under the edge of the cake then cover the cake in buttercream and cover with fondant. i tuck in the fondant into the cake board and then put that one on another cake board with what ever theme cover your are doing.
hope that helps
I use an exacto knife. A fresh blade works best.
Thanks everyone!! Great tips!!
