Ive been practicing covering cake boards with fondant and thought Id gotten the hang of it. I tried it on a large (20) board this weekend for grandsons cake, and after it dried the edges (sides) cracked off when we lifted the board & cake. Am I rolling it to thin? Should I not cover the sides of a foam core board with fondant-was that my problem? I use "The Mat" so it was soft & workable when I applied and no tears or cracks along the edges when I was done. I used a light brushing of piping gel to adhere to the sides/top of the foam core board used. Also, I covered the board 2 days ahead of event but sealed it in plastic wrap until the night before when I assembled cake. Im using Satin Ice fondant and want to do this again for upcoming wedding but fondant falling off the sides is not the look I was going for Thanks for any advice!
