I'm having trouble covering my square cakes with fondant everytime i try it starts to tear at the top corners. I figured my fondant may have been too thick at the edges when there hanging prior to me cutting but I tried thinning them and it still doesnt make a difference. What am I doing wrong? Also I dont get nice clean edge like I would like does anyone have instructions, advice or a video/tutorial that can possibly show me how to perfect this technique. I've been getting by with improvising but I want to be able to do this the "right" way. Help please!!!
Check out the tutorial link on my signature.
There is a couple of videos.
Thanks so much I'm gonna take a peek now.
Smoosh or sand off the sharp edge--I use sandpaper--my girlfriend uses a curling iron covered with a stocking to take off that edge.
Sandpaper? Would you mind elaborating on that a bit more for me? Won't the grains of the sand paper stay on the fondant?
I think Kate meant on a styrofoam cake.
If it's tearing at the corners, maybe it's too thin?
Yes--I carried over a foam cake thought from another thread didn't I.
That's for foam cakes--
