How would you go about to cover an Upright 12" high x 8" wide x 4" depth Cake? I'm having trouble figuring this out. Any suggestions! Smile

Take the height of the cake x 2 +the width of the top of the cake.

Roll out the fondant in a cirlce or square to at least that large.

Thank for your response,

What about the extra fondant since it is not a perfect square but a rectangle shape and very tall? Will I create creases?

Your cake is really 12" tall? Tall? You've got internal support right?

If so, I think I'd consider putting the fondant on in two pieces. One for the top and then the sides.

Thank you Leah,

I forgot to mention this is a post card cake (where is has to look perfect). How thick do you suggest that I roll out the fondant?

Grateful

If it is square, I might consider putting it on 1 side at a time, or wrapping the sides and doing the top separately. I remember seeing the Cake Girls doing it this way once.
