I'm making a shopping bag cake this next weekend and i was wondering if it would be better for me to make panels ahead of time and let the dry a bit or if I should just wrap the cake in fondant? I'm worried that if I do the panels first they will be too hard to cut the cake...Please, anybody! I need some advice. I'd like the crisp corners like an actual shopping bag and I want to indent the sides as well.

Fondant never dries too hard and the panels are the best way to get those crisp corners you want. Pink cake box has a tutorial where they cut the panels and place them in the freezer for a while to harden.

Thank you, Kaykaymay. Do you have the link for that tutorial? I tried googling it, but I didn't find it.

Actually they weren't doing a shopping bag, it was a shoe box but the same principles apply with the panels don't you think? check it out:
