Do you normally cover the entire cake board and then put the cake on top or do you put the cake on the board first and then put a strip of fondant around the cake? I'm hoping to try this for the first time for the cake that's due tomorrow
I always cover the whole board, but I've seen instructions in books where they just put the strip around the cake. I guess it can be done either way. I use MMF and it's cheap D: If I were using the more expensive stuff I'd be just putting the strip around the cake.
I always put it over the whole board because it's easier for me but I have seen a video on doing just the strip. I may attempt at some time but it seems harder to do for me.
i have done both. some people also.. after covering the board.. take the cake circle and lay it on board . cut around it. lift that peice off... then , put their cake down . that is on a cake board.into the circle.. that is a nice way to do it.also.. hth
I cover the whole board. I think I'd go crazy trying to get the strip around the cake to fit and look right. Kudos to anyone who can do it!
