What is the easiest/best way to do a checkerboard with fondant? Would it be easier to cover the cake with white fondant and then cut out black squares or paint on black squares or is there a way to make it a checkerboard before covering the cake....
I am thinking covering the cake with white and then cutting out the black squares would be the best...I could be wrong though. Any of your advice would be great. Thanks!
I think you are right on track with covering and then adding the cut out squares. Your lines will be perfectly straight if you use a cutter and it would look much better. That is what I would do.
Not a bad idea but wouldn't the board be uneven? - the black would be slightly raised.
That is what I was thinking, that the black would be raised. I have seen it done that way before and it looks ok, but I have also seen it where it all looks like the same piece or whatever and looks really nice, just wondering of there is any easy way to do it.
I cut out both black & white squares and placed the side by side for the pattern on my Twilight cake. It wasn't hard to do and all of the pieces were uniform that way.
