Sure. Just roll it out and lay it on, being careful to smooth out all air bubbles.
thanx for the reply,shall go ahead and give it a go x
i have done this a couple of time, but you are prone to getting bubbles, if you can prick them with a needle and fill the hole with a little royal icing,x
If your making this cake for someone other than yourself, you have to think of what there thought would be with a double layer of fondant (devil's advocate) Why not just take off the fondant, re-ice the cake let it set up and then re apply the fondant. If your afraid that when you take off the fondant the cake will rip then pop it in the fridge for a little while to harden up the fondant. Use an exacto knife to make slits in the fondant, don't just rip from anywhere give yourself a guide. Good Luck
