I would like to try covering the Wilton "Petals" Cake (Flower shaped) in Fondant, but am a little hesitant. Has anyone done this successfully? I would appreciate any tips on what to do (or what not to do). If this is too difficult, then I may have to bake a different cake (plain round).

I think, giving the curvy edges, you will just need to take your time on this one . . Ive never done a petal cake, so i cant give advice from experience, but i think the trick is not to roll your fondant too thin, so that it tears easily .. and not to roll it so thick that its too difficult to work with (if that makes sense) lol xx

Well, the cake just took some extra "fiddling". Not as daunting a task as I had thought. However, it could just be beginner's luck. We will see if I can successfully repeat it.

It is the "Fancy Nancy" Cake in my Photos.
