Hi everyone, I just was wondering when you cover a cake board in fondant how far ahead do you do it. I've covered them before but usually right after the cake is done with the extra fondant. I'm doing a cake this weekend that is going to be a lot of work and am going to cover the cake board and would like to do some put some stenciling on it. I was just wondering if I can do this in advance and if so how for ahead would you recommend? Thanks........Tonia
You can cover it now, it's not like the fondant on the board is going to be eaten. Less chance of having it dent and ding before then too.
Ditto what Jamie said. Do it now. It will be easier to work with.
Hi Tonia, you can cover the board now. But make sure you don't put the cake straight on the board, as it goes soggy. So the best thing to do is put the cake on a thin board, and keep it on the fondant covered board with a bit of royal icing to make it secure.
Thanks so much for all the helpful advice
