Kind of new, here. How do I make the seamless corners of a square fondant covered cake?

Put your sheet of fondant on the cake. Then do the corners first. Once those are down, then do the sides.

I do as karateka says, one big sheet of fondant, do corners first and the sides just seem to fall into place. good luck

Search out youtube...there are some great tutorials. And, it just takes a lot of practice, quite simply. I have good days and bad...thank God for borders! icon_biggrin.gif

Search for Flawless Fondant by sharon zambito, you can get a free tutorial on it.

I start on one corner, pulling my fondant gently to mold around the corner. Then I just work my way around the cake. Make sure you have a fondant smoother. The first few cakes I did, I didn't have one, and they're great to help make your corners just right. I also agree with _Jamie_. It just takes good practice! Good luck!

Yes this video shows that you start at the corners first, she uses two fondant smoothers. She's really good with fondant.

2 fondant smoothers to be exact...that is something that helps greatly as well!
