Yesterday I made a giant cupcake, i wanted the base in fondant!!
I turned the base upside down and gave it a fine layer of butter cream..then smoothed over the fondant...the ridges didnt show through from the cake and it was a lumpy mess ;-(
Why cant I get a nice neat base like this one:
Please Help x
That is actually a shell made with candy melts, or something similar.
There are a number of tutorials for it, http://cakecentral.com/a/giant-cupcake-candy-melt-base, that was just my first result on CC :)
I agree with scrumdiddly
AIf using fondant, I would use find ropes under the sheet of fondant I get that look.

I placed the ropes then covered with fondant to get the right texture [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2951209/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
This might help you!
Best of Luck.
Maybe this seems likeÂ strange question to some of you, but I"m a newbie...and I'm wondering, what are "find ropes?"Â I've never heard of that...Just wondering because I really like the texture it gave the bottle cake.Â Thanks!
ASorry, that was fondant ropes. I was fast typin on my phone.
I used an extruder to make the ropes but you can also just roll them by hand.
ahhh!!! lol...Okay, that makes sense now :)Â Thanks
Was the base of the first cake actually fondant? Â It looks like pink cake baked in the giant cupcake pan. Â Fondant in that shape might be difficult. Â The best cupcake base is made from candy melts, IMHO. Â
Would love to see a pic Babbo if you try again.
