I've only ever covered round cakes with fondant except for an early cake that didn't do so well.

Does anybody have tips you could give me? I would assume it's more difficult than a round cake ... ahhh i'm so nervous.

I've never covered a square cake but I have covered cakes that have been carved and they were no different than covering a round cake. Just keep "fluffing" the skirt of the cake as you go and it should work. Good luck.

The best advise i can offer to covering a square cake is to take your time, then you can really get the corners square and crisp. Good luck thumbs_up.gif

I cover lots of squares and best thing is always start with each corner first. Smooth the top then ease those corners in - stroking upwards with the palm of your hand. No easing downwards or it may tear on the corners. then ease each side in once you got the corners on. Then get those smoothers out. As the ladies suggest lot of you tube videos too very helpful in seeing it in action
