HEY GUYS,

I AM NEW TO USING FONDANT. I HAVE DONE 4 CAKES WITH IT SO FAR AND EACH TIME THE SAME THING HAPPENS. I ROLL THE FONDANT OUT NICE AND THIN NO PROBLEM, ITS NOT DRY OR ANYTHING, THEN I PUT IT ON THE CAKE AND I START TO SMOOTH IT ON USING MY HAND AND THE FONDANT SMOOTHER. i START AT ONE END AND EVERYTHING IS FINE UNTIL I GET TO THE END AND ITS LIKE THE FONDANT OVER LAPS AND LEAVES AN UGLY CREASE OR I TRY TO CUT AWAY THE EXTRA FONDANT AND PIECE THE 2 SEAMS TOGETHER AND IT EITHER LEAVES HOLE OR A MESSED UP SPOT. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG? I ROLL OUT ENOUGH TO COVER THE CAKE BUT IT SEEMS TO NEVER END UP LAYING CORRECTLY ONCE I START SMOOTHING IT ON THE CAKE.


HELP!!!! SO FRUSTRATED!!!

First of all please remember to use a mixture of caps and small letters when typing (unless you are shouting the question) icon_lol.gif

You should work your way around the cake exually, pulling the fondant so that it sits snuggly on the cake rather than working from one end to the other. A good way to learn is to watch a few tutorials on you tube and wonderhowto.com you will be able to see how to cover any shape with out getting the crease. Good luck icon_biggrin.gif
