Hey there CC folks,

I have a question...I am doing a race car the shape of a 3. How to I cove this cake in fondant. The original is done in a that cake. I don't have a pan for the 3 so I have to carve it. But now I am wondering about covering..maybe this is a stupid question but my brain is fried I have done 5 large cakes and 2 dozen cup cakes and a cookie cake this week..this one is my last cake for the week. I need some one to just talk me thru this...hahaha

There's no pic. Attachments have been impossible for the past several weeks.

To cover the 3 in fondant, cover the top and the sides separately. It will be easier to wrap a long piece around the sides.

That said, if the curves aren't too narrow, you can cover it all in one swell foop. Just be sure to leave enough excess so you'll be able to press it into the curves.

Yeah I see my picture won't come up...Thanks that's what I thought on the sides of this cake though are stripes black and white. Wonder if I should just cut my stripes out and adhere them to the side?
