post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
So I'm improving my fondant covering , but I can never get the crisp sharp edges with a fondant finish!
Any advice or techniques or tricks anyone has to share greatly appreciated!
Just striving for that sharp finish! :-/

There's an excellent FREE class taught by Linda Harden at CakeMasters...she teaches exactly what you want to know and more...

 

The cake she decorates is a very basic design, and you may not learn anything new, but everything she does before that is a must-see...

Truly.

Depends which fondant you use. I know that sounds silly but it's true.

I always start on the corners. I smooth and pinch just a bit. Then I use the stretching & pulling and smoothing in the center of the side. I use fondarific.

Another method is smooth & cover as usual then use the exacto to trim the corner. The fondant has to be a bit thicker for that to work.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Thanks all! I use fondarific also. Going to try some pinching when I smooth and stretch.

I attempted two fondant smoothers for creating an edge but it didn't turn out as sharp as I'd wanted.
