So far ive only covered round cakes with fondant...A
ny help with covering a cross??? Im using the wilton pan.
How big do I roll the fondant???? Would love some tips!!!!
Thanks so much!!!
Measure how long the cross is then add 4-5"; same w/the with of the cross arms. That's how big you have to roll the fondant.
I prefer to roll out fondant on a big sheet of heavy plastic. Once I have the size I need, loosen the fondant to be sure it's not sticking to the plastic, then pick up the plastic w/fondant on it and turn it over onto the cake I'm covering. The fondant will peel off the plastic - sometimes needs a bit of coaxing
With a cross there will be lots of excess fondant to cut off. Work quickly
so does anyone know how many pounds of fondant I might need?
my first fondant cake was the wilton cross. i think it was just as easy, if not easier, then a round. less flattening/stretching.
while i use satin ice in a big bucket now, then i was using wilton. if i remember correctly, i rolled out less then a box of wilton fondant.
in my best guestimation, it would take a pound to roll out that size. i hope others answer this though, cause i am not very good at guessing things like amount, distance, age, etc.
go for it, you will do fine! especially since you already have some fondant work under your belt.
