For this cake are the green and pink fondant wrapped only around the sides leaving the top open, then the white is laid on top OR is the entire cake covered in green/pink as normal, then the white laid on top? I love this look and am trying it tonight for the first time.

i dont think i am understanding what you are asking... it appears to be green fondant on the bottom, then topped with white fondant. looks the same for the pink. then the embelleshments glued on or so.

i was just looking that the white casts a shadow on the colored fondant.

try PM her. maybe she will share icon_smile.gif

I think you could do it either way, but it would seem easier just to cover the whole cake in pink/green and then put the white over the top.

I'm brand new to the site and brand new to fondant. But after looking at the sample cake it clearly shows that the white is drapped OVER the green. That's why the white is casting a shadow. Good Luck!

From the picture what they did was first covered the cake in the green/pink fondant then just took another piece of white fondant put it on top of the cake then cut out the curve design using a knife....

I havent tried this but have read on here somewhere you cover the cake in green/pink then using the tin that you baked the cake in as a guide cut round it but larger and swirled then place this over the top of the cake. Hope that makes sense
