How difficult is it to do fondant on heart shaped cakes? Ive worked with fondant a few times. And is there a difference in how easy it is to work with between the cheap Wilton fondant and the Fondarific fondant?
I don't find it difficult at all to cover a heart cake. I just start from the top and work my way around smoothing as I go.
I think covering a heart shape is fairly easy. Wilton fondant and Fondarific are very different. Fondarific is much softer and it does not dry out as quickly. I prefer Fondarific.
With a heart, first smooth the deep indent, then the bottom point. Move from the indent around the 2 upper curves and then smooth the sides like you would a round.
I thought it would be hard to cover a heart, but it is actually fairly easy. I do roll my fondant just a little bit thicker when doing a smaller heart though and I always start at the the top/indentation of the heart and work my way down.
