I am making a larger cake and need to add fondant in two batches. How can I "tidy" up the seam so it is as smooth as possible? Thanks

I use crisco and just smooth one seam over another with my fingers. I don't really know how to explain it Sorry

To get a really neat seam, place your two pieces of fondant on the cake letting them overlap a little. Then cut right through both pieces in a straight line. Remove the small piece of excess fondant which sits on top. Carefully lift the edge of the fondant (just a little) and remove the small piece of excess fondant beneath it. Your two pieces of fondant will then line up perfectly. Rub the seam line gently with your finger or a smoother and the seam should disappear (if not entirely, then almost entirely).

I hope that explanation makes sense...

Kind regards,
