Hello CC'ers, I just got a last minute order for a 21st birthday cake. They want a frothy beer mug cake, and I'd prefer to cover the cake in fondant... Any tips on covering this tall thin cake in fondant? Should I wrap the fondant around the stacked cakes - with the seams hidden by the mug handle? Or attempt to cover it like any other cake?...

TIA!

Will it be a round mug or a hexagonal mug? If you want nice angles, then I would recommend modeling chocolate panels. If the cake is smaller, I would cover it in the traditional way. Just covering the around the sides can present it's own problems. HTH!

If I had to do one I think that I would do vertical ones with fondant to get a glass like apperance and cover the top with white for the foam over the top, HTH and makes sence?

It will be a pretty small cake - about the size of a regular mug of beer. My husband is a beer enthusiast so luckily we have lots of beer mugs around that I can model the cake after... The mug I'm thinking I will use as a "template" is about 8 inches tall and only about 3+ inches in diameter. The sides are kind of rounded pleats or a rounded hexgon - if that makes sense?... Of course the top will look frothy with frosting or meringue foam or something... but mostly looking for tips on generally covering the mug in fondant...

Thanks you guys for your responses icon_smile.gif
