How do I make corners crisp and sharp when I'm covering a cake in fondant? Mine are always super rounded despite my attempts.

Thanks!!!

Do you use a fondant smoother on the sides? That usually helps. The corners will never be really sharp using fondant. Part of what makes the fondant look is the rounded edges.

I've seen people use a thin layer of ganache underneath the fondant rather than icing in BC. It gives a sharper edge although it will never be as quite as sharp as in BC alone.



*edited to add the word "alone" for clarification*

Totaly agree with vlin 28! icon_smile.gif You cannot get a very sharp edge with bc under fondant.
