I am going to be making my daughter's birthday cake next week. The plan is to cover the cakeboard with fondant (my first time). I am making an 8 inch double layer cake, also covered in fondant to go on top. I am trying to think through the logistics. Should I prepare the cake on an 8 inch (or larger?) board (i.e. apply the crumb coat and fondant) and then "slide" it off of the board and place it on the fondant board?? Is there an easy way to go about this? I can't quite fathom how to transfer the cake onto the fondant board and not ruin it in the process. Thanks for your help!
