This may be a dumb question, but I am making a football cake tommorow and am going to be covering a cake board with green fondant ( for the field) then go on and cover my football cake on a separate area from the covererd board.( I do not want to ruin the field on the board)
How does one go about then moving your finished fondant covererd cake onto the decorated fondant covererd board??
I have never covererd a board before and this is only my 4 or 5 fondant covererd cake, so I am quite a cake virgin still LOL and really have no clue how to do this without wrecking the football cake or board in the process.
Hope someone cna give me some pointers on this.
Slide a sturdy hamburger flipper or something similar under it, and carefully transfer to fondant covered board. Easy peasy.
i was going to say the same thing, use something to slide under the cake, you could try waiting till the fondant has dried out a little on your football to stop finger indentations when you do move it
I keep mine in the fridge. The cold firms up the fondant so I can pick it up gently with my hands without denting it. If it does get dented, the fondant smoother takes care of it.
i would , also, dampen the area where the football will sit, with a little water.. or you can put a little royal icing there.. or little buttercream. to make sure it adheres to the board.. that is what i do anyway..hth
Thanks so much, very good tips, I will follow them.
I hope everything turns out,
