Any tips on covering my first fondant cake? I am making a baseball cap over a base. Need Help .. cake for Sat! Never covered cake in fondant before.. thanks
There are LOTS of great tutorials on YouTube that will walk you thru the process. For your first time remember to make enough fondant for mistakes! My first fondant cake I covered 3 times before I got it to how I wanted it! LOL!
Yep, tons of great tips on YouTube. That's how I learned everything! When kneading fondant, especially if it's been left overnight, I found that the microwave and Crisco were my best friends.
Let us know if you have any specific questions as you go through!
Ok , so my fondant tore while i was putting in on the cake and it was an odd shape and i couldnt figure out how to cover the corners so it overlapped seemed pretty easy until i came to corners lol then not so much!
Aww, that's too bad!! I'll admit that I haven't done that many corners, but I usually just go really slowly. smoothing out the top couple of centimetres all around, then the next centimetres down, etc. Hopefully with more and more practice, we'll both get better!
