Help, I am making a triangle shaped cake(piece of cheese) and would like to cover it in fondant instead of buttercream frosting. Any tips how to get a good finish? This will be my first time covering a cake completely in fondant and would much appreciate some advice
Thanks

My advice would be to just take it nice and slow. Drape it and slowly work out the corners. Doing the squares and triangles can be tricky.

would it be better to do the top and sides seperately? One top panel and 3 side panels?

Nah, go for it... do it all in one piece. Just take it nice and slow, working the corners first then smoothing the sides. It'll all come together and look much better in one sheet.

You can do it!
