When I cover a tier where the top is larger than the bottom (like in a topsy turvy cake), I always get bad seams on the bottom because there is more fondant. HELP! How do I fix this? I've watched how to videos and they all do it and it looks great; however, when I do it, it looks like poo.
Elevate that cake Place your cake on a board the same size; place this on anything that is slightly smaller around but about 3-4" tall (a Crisco can?). Now when you put the fondant on the cake it will hang down past the edge of the cake/board so you can cut it off.
Work quickly or the fondant might tear at the top - if you rolled it thin.
Letting a bunch hang off helps. Also lift and smooth. It sounds counterintuitive, but you need to keep lifting the bottom up with one hand and smoothing with the other.
Thank you , That`s definitely going to help .
