I'm making a giftbox cake this week for a bachelorette party, and the sides of the cake will be fondant panels. I'm assuming I have to remove the panels and whatever I put at the top in order to cut the cake, right? Won't that just look ugly? Should I maybe cover in fondant first, so that when I remove the panels it doesn't look so unfinished? Thanks!

Fondant should cut w/a nice sharp knife. No need to remove them.

I just watched Sharon's Boxes and Bows DVD and she also advocates cutting right through the panels with a sharp knife rather than removing them, which would make a big mess.

I have the DVD ... guess I missed that part! Any idea if it would be any good to eat, all hardened? Thanks for the help!

Well, I doubt it would be good to eat, so your guests will likely just leave it on their plate and eat the good stuff. icon_smile.gif

I don't know from experience, but I have seen it on here where people have said to not use a serated knife.
