I have seen some cute pictures on here with the fondant tops appearing to run over the sides and some have trim on them.How do you do that??


Thanks in advance for your help! icon_biggrin.gif

If you're thinking of what I'm thinking, that's actually done with royal icing.

Like that one?

Or do you mean more like this one, where the fondant wraps over the edge?

Yes, like the second picture, where it is a two tone look. So the trim is royal, but how do you cut the top fondant piece to sit over the cake?

You can cover the whole cake with the bottom colour (the blue in the second picture), then cut the top piece before placing it over the cake. The trim is either rolled or pushed through an extruder and stuck on with water or tylose glue.

Or you can cover the cake with the top colour, then wrap the second colour around the first.
