AHowdy, I need to cover a car cake shaped like a 1967 Pymouth Roadrunner. It's fairly large and has a lot of angles, ridges etc carved into. I'm wondering if I should try to cover it in once piece of fondant (and by large I mean 26 inches long x 11 inches wide x 8 inches tall at it highest spot) or in sections....like roof, the hood, trunk, side panels....I am leaning toward the one piece, as I am afraid of fondant seams ;) Help? Suggestions?
I'd go with one piece and just don't roll it to thin so it has lots of give as you work it around crevices.
I've met people who don't smooth fondant like me so I'll throw in what I do just encase you happen to do
it different. My teacher taught me to go in circular motions with your finger and work from top of cake down. I lift the fondant that is touching the table up while doing this which avoids those drapes. IF you already do that then just ignore me..lol but you'd be surprised how many ppl I have known who do it different.
I have never had a tear unless the fondant was paper thin.
AOne giant piece of fondant...rolled by hand.....thnx for the advice, went fairly smoothly (the second attempt :) ) [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3022518/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
good job! Like I said that circular trick works wonders. I'm gonna do a 1932 coupe for my dad so I'll post when I'm done.
