I have a few questions....Should I refridgerate my cake before I attempt to put the fondant on the cake? And how thick does the icing need to be? I just can't seem to get a regular cake covered like I want. I just ordered some Fondx, so hopefully, maybe that will help. Guess we'll see. Any suggestions/instructions would be great!!!
hi, look at the site
also, on youtube , look at sweetwise using "the mat". Also , so many tutorials on youtube of covering cakes in fondant. Look at Planet Cakes tutorila(great) on how they do it. Aine2(c/cer ) shows on youtube. She has a great site. Look up her user name and it will lead to her web site. you will get great tips from these tutorials. hth
I have used fondX a few times, and found it to be very soft, so if your not used to using fondant, you could have trouble picking it up and over to the cake. I have bought the MAT from sweetwise and its great... and I have rolled it out pretty thin, at least half as thin as what I can with bakels.
and as icer101 says, check out youtube its all practice practice practice. !
oh and is it a round or a square cake.. round is easier..
Thank y'all so much for the input!! The websites were really helpful. I think I will be ordering the MAT also! I will be practicing....practice makes perfect!
Now that you've gotten some good replies, I'm going to go off on a tangent here. Ever read the title of some of the threads and have a smart a@$ answer for the title? I have that happen to me very often. And when I read the title to your thread, my first thought was, "have someone else do it"...... (That isn't meant for you specifically, but for me and everyone else it applies to.) Sorry, but once you had your answers I thought I'd just say it.
