I will be doing a wedding cake with fondant panels to get the edges really sharp. I have used panels before on single tier cakes where the bottom of the panel of fondant was resting on the board. I'm worried about using panels on the upper tiers of the cake because the panels will be on the side of the cake/board and not resting on the board itself (I don't want the board to show). I'm afraid the weight of the panel will cause it to slide down off the cake. I hope this is making sense. Has anyone ever used fondant panels on a tier that was not a stacked contruction? Did it work out for you?
I did not try to use panels without support but try to stick them to long enought flower nails or something like that. Just an idea... don't know if it may work
