Does anyone know how to make the top of a square box cake, covered in fondant????, I've seen 2 different types, one where you just put a 2 inch ribbon around it, don't like this one. And another, where you put fondant on top of it, but how do you do the edges???

I've only done one, and I'll try posting it here, but if it doesn't work, you can see it in my photos. It's the pink one "pure romance." If thats the one you like, I made the very top out of rice krispies. When it dried, I covered it in royal to get more of a smooth appearance and to firm it up.
Then I simply covered it as I would a square cake and brought the fondant around underneath about an inch because the roses were going to fill it in, so it wouldn't show any more than that.
I hope this helps?

Look for a thread called "my hatbox instructions" I think it's by Fairytale. She gives a great description of how to do this technique.

Are you wanting to make the open lid box top or the closed lid box top? I have written instructions I can email you for the open box top.
