how do i get a more defined edge when covering a cake in fondant? it always seems kind of rounded and i was wondering if there was any way to make the edges look more....edgy
I use 2 fondant smoothers. One I hold up against the side of the cake as I work the top with the other. Don't know if that makes any sense at all . I actually learned this technique from watching tutorials on youtube.
My instructor for my fondant cake class showed me how to use two fondant smoothers together (one on top, one on the sides) to get a sharper edge. It worked pretty well.
Use chocolate ganache under your fondant. It sets up much firmer than most buttercreams and gives a sharper edge.
