I'm doing my first wedding cake for this Saturday. After covering it with fondant, it looks bumpy. I iced it very smoothly and I chilled it. Did I do something wrong?
Any tips??

I'm not a expert... I've only used fondant once, but mine was bumpy until I smoothed it multiple times with the fondant smoothing tool. It made all the difference for me.

Good luck!!

i don't put my cakes in the fridge, what did you use to cover the cake under the fondant? i usually use a little buttercream, make sure the icing isn't too thin and smooth with smoothers, i have two one so i can smooth and the other so i don't make finger marks in the cake when turning it.

Did you smooth over the fondant with smoothers?

What type of fondant are you using? Homemade or store bought?

Mine is a very easy to make, semi-homemade white chocolate fondant.

Oh, sorry, I saw you were asking Liz as I pressed the button.

Thanks for the tips.
I'm using a store bought one. Would you recommend homemade. I've never made fondant. Any recipes that you'd recommend?
I covered the cake with buttercream. I used the smoother and it made it better. I think that I wasn't using enough pressure.
I'm happy with it. I hope the couple is too!!

I like the idea of 2 smoothers. I keep getting my fingermarks on the cake!!
