I have a 12"by 8" tall cake, I want to cover it with fondant. I am wondering if I can do the same as regular cake or is there any other way to get better ?!!!!
by the way I am new to this page and I found it very helpful
Thanks in advance
for some of my bigger cakes, especially if there is going to be a ribbon down the middle, I decorate in 2 halves, rather then the whole entire cake. So I cover both halves and use the ribbon or stripe to hide the seems. Not sure if this will work for your cake. Or perhaps you could wrap the cake with fondant and meld the seams together.
there is a thread on cc regarding wrapping a double barrel cake, that may be helpful.
I also faced the challenge of trying to cover a large sheet cake (6" tall x 18" wide) with fondant. You could try covering the cake in two stages - sides first and then the top - finish edges with a shell border of royal icing or buttercream - to conceal the joins. This method worked well for me - see picture.
Good luck with your cake
Hope this helps!
Thank you both for your quick and helpful answers
wish me luck
by the way Margaret, your cakes are beautiful
Thanks for the compliment - glad to share!
