Hello to all
Im having a problem..
Lately when I cover my cakes in fondant,
I've notice i can see the layers through the fondant.
I've tried to cover on a thicker layer of fondant but it didnt work,
I also though it must have been a bad batch of fondant; and bought from another store but the same problem accured.
I even tried the homemade mm fondant, but no luck.

I never had that issue and for my last couple of cakes, I was forced to use imprint design mats to cover up the unsmoothness of the fondant.

Any tips are highly appreciated, Thanks

Maybe a thicker crumb coat would help?

Another thing that I just learned was that the bottom on the bottom layer is the bottom, but the bottom (pan sid) on the top layer is the top.

........ the bottom on the bottom layer is the bottom, but the bottom (pan sid) on the top layer is the top.........

In other words you stack the layers top to top.

How thick are you rolling your fondant? It should be about the thickness of a cake circle.
