Ok from the tutorial it LOOKS easy... but after trying it i ran into some obstacles. For one thing, how do you get the fondant to go on the WHOLE thing and not mess up at the corners? i tried, and it didnt quite work out, and i'm usually good with fondant. any help will be greatly appreciated! thanks!!!
IDK but here is a bump.
I'm by far no expert, and this is going to be difficult to explain in words...but here's how I do it...
You put your pillowcake (coevered in BC) on a tin or someting so that it is elevated and you can come in under the corners.
Roll out your fondant in a square, big enough to cover the top, sides and a bit underneath.
Put it over the cake so that it hangs over it like a cloth.
Smooth lightly from the top and over the sides.
At the corners(underneath) you press the 2 sides of the square that meet there, together. Take a scissor and cut the excess off in a straight line underneath the corner, so it will look like a seam going from the corner to the middle of the cake. (Do you understand??) This will be on the bottom of your cake - so no-one will see it in any case. It gives you a nice sharp point as well.
Hope this helped...Her's one of mine.
Do your corners first and you did need extra to tuck underneath, not alot though!
Nice job on the pillow!!!
