Hi. Go to and type in Covering a square cake in Fondant. You will turn up several different ones.

I'm no expert but the way I was taught was to lay the fondant on the cake then smooth the top then I cup my hands on the corners first then smooth the sides.
Hope that makes sense icon_redface.gif

i do it this way:

corner, corner, then that middle
corner, corner, then that middle

repeat x 4 sides. really not hard when you do it that way!
