I have a wedding cake to make, that is covered in fondant, but each tier doesn't have a border on the bottom. I don't work with fondant all the time, so can anyone give me some hints on how I would get the fondant from the tier above to smooth into the next tier below it? Any tips, suggestions, etc???
Two things. You can either place the cake up on a smaller stand and cover it with fondant then cut the bottom border a little longer and wrap the fondant around and under the bottom. But this is tricky because you can't take the cake off of the stand to set it down anywhere. It would have to be placed on the cake board and not moved. Then do the same with the second tier, etc. Or you can cover the tiers and even off the bottoms then stack. Then mix up a batch of standard buttercream and put into an icing bag with a small O tip and pipe icing into the crack between the two cakes then smooth with a damp finger. The icing makes the cakes look like they don't have a seam and have all been covered with one pc. of fondant. For best results make sure the top of each cake is perfectly flat.
Thanks for the reply. It sounds like the second option is the easiest and best way to go, right??
You got that right.
What about something like this?
