Hi All,

I was just curious if it's possible to cut fondant when dry or almost dry. If so, how exactly should I do it (i.e. with a serrated knife or a smooth knife).

I'm trying to make fondant panels that I'd like to paint on before placing on a square cake. And I'd like the edges of the fondant to be smooth.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Exacto knife would be what I would go for.

if it's not rock hard you can even use scissors. for nice cuts, definitely get a super sharp blade that's easy for you to control (e.g. an exacto knife like the others suggested). go slow and shave off your excess.
