Attention MMF experts! - Page 2

post #16 of 22
(thanks tcicon_smile.gif )
I did notice on this article the cake wasn't raised any, does it help to have it raised or not? I've done both ways and I'm wondering now if having it raised caused some of my problems the last time. Too much excess weight pulling, stretching, etc.
TC, how did you manage yours?

When I did it I put a plate under the cake that is about an inch smaller then the cake. Then I put it on the regular wilton turn table. I just cut the MMF even w/ the bottom of the cake board.

Another thing I figured out was instead of picking up the MMF (& risking breaking it), I just turned the circle (I rolled the MMF on) along w/ the MMF over onto the cake. I let it sit a few seconds then I peel off the circle! Before I start stretching the MMF I let it sit a little longer. You know how gravity is! It pulls the MMF down. Then all I had to do was put my clean hands down the sides of the cake & cut off the extra MMF. I never used a fondant smoother! MMF is so smooth & easy to work w/ it's unbelieveable! I'm going to try & upload a pic of the cake I covered one more time. I took it before I decorated it.

Ok! It finally uploaded! Notice the bottom of the cake. It has a little bit of gathers in it. That doesn't show when I put my border on it. If I wasn't putting border I would have gotten it smoother. Sorry the pic is blurry. The pic I scanned wasn't.

So just raised up a little bit and that should work then. Very smooth looking fondant!!!
Thanks TC, I appreciate the info!

Nice job TC... I find that it helps keep the wrinkles away when you set the cake on somethihing so the fondant can hang freely. I usually use a cake pan a size smaller than the cake. I put the cake on top of that and let the fondant hang down. It doesn't bunch up nearly as bad that way.

Thank you guys! For my 1st try I was surprised how well it turned out! I sure hope it turns out good the next few times too!

Peacock, I will have to try the cake pan on top of it. Good idea.

Jscakes, yes, just put a cake board under the cake, it makes a big difference.
