I made a 6" round cake yesterday and tried to put fondant on it and I messed it up so mad.. I took it off thru it in trash and started over. I messed up again. But It left it on and buttercream icing over it..
I can do a 8" cake fine.. What am I doing wrong.. it had wrinkles in it at the bottom...

When I roll out fondant for small size cakes, I make sure the fondant is quit big, but the right thickness. When put the fondant on the cake, you have lot of fondant and less wrinkles around the bottom edge. icon_smile.gif

Melissa, I do the same thing, I always use too little fondant and I'm having a hard time breaking myself of it, I hate feeling like I'm wasting it all, but when you have to rip it off and start over you're still wasting the fondant plus there's all the extra stress! Good luck.
