I have a 10" square cake and 8" high and want to wrap the fondant around the sides. I don't have an area 40" long or more to roll it out. Will it work if I do it in two sections, 20" long each? The seam where the meet is going to be in the middle of one side and the fondant ribbon will cover it. TIA.

I don't see why not. I would use the 'ribbon' method. This is where you cut your desired length/width and dust liberally with cornstarch as you roll it into a ribbon (or bandage shape). Then, you can stand the roll up on it's side and easily unroll against the cake.

Thanks. I just wanted to make sure. I had visions of it sliding down the sides of the cake by morning. Take care.

If you are worried about it sliding down, how about painting/spraying on a bit of water on the main cake to make it stick as you role the ribbon on?
