Make sure you dont roll out your fondant too thin, keep it slightly thicker and roll out way more than what you need. Try to do the sharp corners first then work your way around the cake, i hope this helps...

Hi, I did a No.1 cake recently. You can do exactly what Becscakes mentioned. That's the way I did it. The other thing that you can do is measure around the cake and the hight and cut a long piece of fondant to that measurments, and do around the cake first. Then cover the top with another piece of fondant. The seam on the top can be covered by using a boarder or crimpers. Hope this makes sence. icon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gif
