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)
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
sorry for the all caps im at work and the program i work with requires me to write in all caps and I forgot to take it off before I started typing. Nothing ment by it
Scrummymummy you crack me up
I never imagined you ment anything by it but some people might think you are being rude
here is the link to the how to site that will help
