So I have done 2 square cakes covered in marshmallow fondant and I cannot get my fondant to lay flat on the corners! The vertical edges and bottom corners always have extra fondant, fold, overlap... I just cannot get it to look clean. Help! I need some suggestions, fast! icon_smile.gif Thank you

I was taught to lay the fondant over the top of the cake, and then smooth my corners first THEN smooth the side of the cake.... Works great!

When i cover my square cakes i always smooth the corners first and then i smooth the flat sides. I find that there is less 'extra' fondant to smooth when doing it this way iykwim...
