I'd like some tips please: tomorrow I am applying fondant to a cake that I have cut out in the shape of a number 2. The fondant will overlap the side edges just a little and then i'm covering the sides in a different colour. How do I cover the top without stretching or tearing around the cutout sections?

AJust a thought but if you are covering the sides with a diff color why not make a template with wax paper, roll out fondant use template to cut out shape apply your top first slightly stretch down sides if needed then do your sides

Brilliant! Such a simple solution. Thank you rexygirl. I have already made a cardboard template that I used to cut out the cake; I just need to draw around it making it a little larger.
