Hello,

I have a 3D golf bag which will stand upright and I was wondering if anyone could advise me on how best to cover the thing with fondant without the sides slipping down or tearing while it sits or during transport. I have heard that this could happen on large vertical surfaces. I believe some people use modeling chocolate first to cover the cake then use fondant on top of that which I guess helps to provide more friction for the fondant to hold on to.

Anyone have any experience on how to best handle this situation? If the modeling chocolate is the way to go, how do I best adhere the chocolate to the cake and what to use to adhere the fondant to the chocolate?

Thank you so much,

Lsienna

My best experience has been to lay the bag out first and let it dry well before standing it upright, your handle and threading should hide any laying lines.
