Well, my shop is officially open now. Well, I am actually sharing a shop for now with someone but if things keep going the way they have been, I will have to get my own shop soon, lol. Anyways, here is my first wedding cake. The bride and groom wanted something very simple. The only problen is I cannot get my fondant to go very smooth. If you look close on the left side, you can see the ripples or bubbles whatever it is.

first off congrats,not bad for a first.
my first didnt go very smoothly. I had to get really creative to hide some serious fondant issues.

the picture is a little hard to see, i dont know if my eyes are playing tricks but is the cake undrneath uniform or is the cake underneath alittle bumpy? It might just be the picture but it lookes like the cake underneath has bumps sticking out, or is that fondant that is doing that? or my crooked eyes doing that?

do you use fondant smoothers?

Get yourself a pair (yes two) of good fondant smoothers. When you smooth with one in each hand, it really helps to force those air bubbles out. When you can't smooth them out, take a pin, and prick the very edge of the bubble, on a sideways angle. Smooth from the other side of the bubble, towards the hole. It will come right out. icon_smile.gif

First, thank-you everyone for the positive comments. Carriebear, yes, those are the bumps I was referring to.
