So....last night I had a minor meltdown because I am trying to roll out a large enough piece of fondant to cover a sheet cake board and I was having a really hard time. icon_cry.gif Any suggestions or thoughts that might eliminate another meltdown would be appreciated.

Start with a lot of fondant. You can always cut the excess off and reuse it. But it will definitely take less time if you start with a lot. Otherwise you can find yourself rolling it out, thinking oops, I didn't have enough, now I have to re-roll. That process takes a while. It has happened to me several times in a row. And by then you are frustrated. Make sure you measure the board before you roll as well so you know exactly what size you have to roll.

After the third or fourth time trying to roll it out I thought maybe I should add more but by then I had really had it. Ha! I'll try that today. Thank you!

Try it this way. It will make your life so much easier. And then you'll never skimp on the amount of fondant to throw down again. =o) Happy to help!
