I don't use fondant on my boards...because I don't quite understand how to not ruin it. Do you decorate on it or move cake after? How do you not destroy your cake if you move it?
You can cover it a good few days in advance to make it harden in time for when you put your cake on.
Or, you can put your cake on your non-covered board/drum, and then cover the strip left around the cake with a strip of fondant, which is what I do (roll out a long strip, cut one side to get a sharp edge which goes next to the cake. Roll up loosely into a "bandage", and unroll onto the board. The non cut side will hang over the edge of the board and you trim it with a sharp knife). It uses much less fondant and you don't have to plan in advance
You mean you just put a strip of fondant around the cake, and I assume cover the trim with the cake's border?
See, I am doing a Mr. Potato head, and he has to go on a styrofoam base...which I want covered in fondant. IDK how to go about this.
thanks sooooooooooooooooooo much1!!!!
