When you cover a cake with fondant, are you suppossed to wrap it around the bottom of the cake board? I hope this isnt too silly of a question lol. I have worked with fondant before and just cut the fondant at the base of the cake. Thanks for the help!

I would cut the fondant at the bottom of the cake, then if I wanted the cake board covered in fondant I would do that separately. icon_smile.gif

If you wrap it underneath it will raise the cake up a bit and you will have a space in which might be harder to cover with a border.I cut mine off around the base of the cake!

I have seen cakes where the cake board and cake were covered with one piece of fondant. It looks pretty neat, but I think it would make an awful mess when the cake was cut. You would have to cut around the base of the cake or else pull the fondant out from underneath.

Thanks icon_smile.gif. I was thinking the same thing about cutting the cake. I will just keep doing what I am doing icon_smile.gif.
