I iced the cake first, smoothed it and made the edges sharp as possible. Please keep in mind that this is a mudcake which was covered with ganache.
Once the cover had dried a little, i put on another piece of fondant, which I smoothed down but only stuck down where the lid would go. The fondant was trimmed, then smoothed to make the edges sharp, then trimmed again, as the lid sides will become deformed when you smooth it. Hope that makes sense
