It seems so hard to make the seams match up.

Like the top cake on this picture, where top half is one color and the bottom is another color.

Do I make 2 different colored fondants and after cutting the top one off on the cake, try to manually mold the other color into the seams of the other??? Seems like there is a better way to do it.

The way I would do this is to make the bottom colour first and wrap it around the side of the cake (so obviously measure the diameter of the cake to make sure it fits). Cut the wavy line with a pizza cutter or cutting wheel and remove the excess. Then lay the top colour over the cake. You'll be able to see the line you've cut and carefully follow this for your top layer. Don't worry about not making it exact as you'll cover it up with the snake of paste you put on afterwards. Obviously where you've got a seam from the bottom layer of your paste, start there when you make your snake of paste to keep it as neat as possible.

I hope this makes sense and good luck!

thank you, that makes sense to start on the bottom part.

I can't open the pic right now. Gallery must be in the shop. icon_smile.gif

Following NatalieMarie's (pretty name!) idea, it's actually easier to cover the whole cake in the TOP color. Then, roll out the color for the bottom, cut the wavy top (I'm assuming it's wavy), and wrap it around the bottom of the cake.

I knew there had to be a easy brilliant way I was missing.

Thank you DianeLM, I´ll go with that one.
