I posted a similar question earlier but no one responded - I think I was on the wrong thread...
Anyways - I wanted to create a "street" around my cake and put little matchbox cars around it. So I thought of covering a 14" cakeboard in black fondant and having my 9" cake in the center - Only I'm worried about ruining the cakeboard when trying to cover the cake with fondant - Will it be okay if I cover the cakeboard ahead of time and let it harden? I usually use a pizza cutter to even out the edge around my cake so I'm not sure how to do this.
Thanks in advance for any ideas
Yes you should be fine! Just make sure you let it dry before placing your cake on top.
It'll be fine. I cover all my boards that way. Smear a little piping gel on the board first before you put the fondant on, then smooth from the inside out.
Kimma how do you move it without putting a cake board underneath it? Should I just get a 9" cake board and hope it doesn't show?
I may be misinterpreting your question but you should cover your 9" cake on a separate cake circle, then after you have it covered with fondant use some piping gel or buttercream to hold the 9" cake on the previously covered board. Do not try to cover your 9" cake while it is on the 14" board. Hope that helps!
Nope thats exactly the information I was looking for - Thank you nonilm!
