Im just about coming to grips with covering round/square cakes in fondant and I am doing a cake for a friends daughter the weekend and I want to use the flower/petal pan but have no idea were to even start in covering it. I have googled it but with no results, just wondering would anybody have advice , a method for same.
Just covered a 3 tier petal cake on Saturday! Method is the same as any: lay fondant over frosted cake and pull out from sides like a tent. smooth the top, then gently smooth down the sides, while pulling/stretching fondant. Use the heel of your hand and your fingers to smooth the indent between the 'petals'. You can't really use the fondant smoother tool for these- just your hands.
give it a whirl! Good luck!
cakedout, thank you, the way you described was the way i was thinkin,just seen it wrote down boosts my confidence!! il def be doin it x
Just the same as you would cover a round , I have actually found these easier to do than rounds or Squares.
I too was concerned when I had to cover a petal cake but to my surprise it was much easier than I thought. It came out great! You should be fine.
Your welcome. Remember to post a pic when you are done!
