I have seen what looks like a scalloped table cloth on many CC cakes. I would like to try to make one for a Strawberry Shortcake cake I am doing for my daughter this weekend. My question is how do you get it on there without the excess you get when covering a whole cake in fondant? DOes that make sense? I know this sounds like a silly question, but Iam new to this and really only do cakes for family and friends. Thanks for the help.
I cut mine to size before I lay them on the cake if you want the table cloth look or apply the fondant and trim off if you want the two-toned look.
For the table cloth look I ususally cut the circle 2" larger then the cake, the easiest way to do this is to trace a cake board.
i agree, roll out your fondant, lay the cake pan or the same size cake board on top then cut the fondant 2" or so away, in a wavy pattern if you like, place it on the cake and you may need to trim with an exacto knife if its too long, smooth against cake then extrude a snake of fondant to trim the cut edge.
