I have to make a cake today for an adult first communion. I was going to do an 8" square, very simple white fondant covered, elegant design. I forgot to order more fondant and I will not quite have enough to cover the whole cake. I have other colors, but I'm not sure I like the idea of other colors, I do have yellow, green, etc...

Any thoughts on what I can do on the sides if I cover the cake as much as I can with fondant? And I have never had luck making it, so that's not really a great option for me.

GRRRRR! Off to order more now so this does not happen again.

Mix what you have with a bit of yellow to give you a soft yellow.I think that would be okay for an adult Communion.At least it's not pink!!

Can you go out and pick up a small pack of *gag* Wilton to help stretch your fondant? You can add a drop of antido... I mean... clear vanilla to mask any ickiness that may try to seep in. Desperate times call for desperate measures!

Actually a light bulb just went off in my head - RIBBON! I think I have some wide ribbon that I can use to go around the edge of the cake that is not covered enough. Gonna go through my ribbon bin now...

Ice it all in BC and then use fondant for the decorations?

I can't believe I am going to admit this. Ok, here goes. Very recently.....I had to stretch out the amount of MFF I had. I had a huge tub-o-fondant (Wilton) fr accents and dummy covering.....I mixed in some of that. ((((nooooooooooooooo!)))). Yes I did. And no one was the wiser. icon_biggrin.gif Go figure! It was an emergency, I was not going to make more MFF.....bah, tasted fine! icon_rolleyes.gif

Sorry. That was my tortured attempt at humor. It's the word "antidote", but I cut myself off in the middle as if I didn't mean to say that word. Get it? I guess I'd better keep my day job! icon_redface.gif
