How do you blend the fondant seam in cake wrapping techniques? I did the technique where you have a circle of fondant on top then you wrap the fondant around the side. Image seen others do a tall piece of fondant wrapped and then folded over the top and blended.


for the life of me I cannot figure out how to "blend the seam". One just said use your warm hands, but that totally didn't work. Here is my cake I am working on and cannot figure out how to blend that top seam, so I will just cover it this time.900_how-do-you-blend-the-fond_92214356f18604a81f7.jpg

Your knife wasn't sharp enough when you trimmed the top  that's why the edge is so rough. When I panel a cake I use razor blades, a fresh one every time. The cut is so sharp and clean I don't need to blend the two  

Hope this helps

Oh thank you! Ok. I was using an exacto knife but it wasn't brand new. I appreciate your advice : )
