I'm interested in making a cake with fondant stripes on one of the layers. I'm not sure if I put a layer of fondant down and then cut the fondant stripes and apply them to the fondant base. Or if I just put the fondant stripes on the layer of buttercream icing.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!!

I think covering a cake in fondant, then applying fondant stripes looks nice. Use a ruler on each side to make sure they are nice and straight.

I myself am actually doing a cake this week and I am covering the cake in BC and them cutting the fondant strips and placing them on the cake. I use a metal ruler which I only use for cooking to make sure their all the same.


Good luck!

I use a laser level and project a vertical line on the cake. $10 at the big box hardware store, and both hands are free to work.

I really like that idea. And, I get to use another tool. icon_lol.gif Next thing I know, hubby will be buying me a toolbox for all the tools and such, like pvc, pvc cutter, screws, drill, and now the laser level that we already have and used twice!
