i dont think your going to be able to avoid seams. just try to keep the seams as clean as possible, and keep them at the back. good luck

You can smooth out the seams easier with modeling chocolate than with fondant.

to make to make the seems on the form disappear use a dry wall sand will remove any of the blemishes on the form.....and then i always cover it in a coat of butter cream so the fondant will stick.....good luck

Can you do the fondant in two pieces, one in the front, one on the back. Then make a ribbon, rope, braid etc to cover where the 2 pieces meet? Thats what I did on a 1 that I made.
