AI was trying to figure out how this cake is covered seamlessly in fondant. I think it's round cakes topped with a styrofoam face dummy, but how can we cover it without the seams showing? TIA!

Of course it isn't seamless. They've covered the seam(s) with the 'web'.

They're not seamless...they don't show you the back! But I don't think you cover it all at once. Head gets covered separately from the bottom. A friend of mine made one. You can always cover the seams with the royal icing spiderweb that goes all around it. That's why it looks seamless. Here's what I have about tutorials.
