I did this to help out Katharry and as she has so kindly thanked me upside down for it, I have fixed it so that you can all see it! I'm no professional photographer so be kind! Hope you find it as useful as Katharry did. icon_lol.gif

*Access wasn't allowed on the original link I posted so try this

www.extra-icing.blogspot.com and look under Free Tutorials. thumbs_up.gif
Hope it works!

It is telling me I don't have access to view it icon_sad.gif Would you mind submitting this to Jackie and Heath so they can add it to the articles section? Sounds like a great tutorial

I can get it when I go to your website (the one in your sig) then click on it under tutorials, but still can't get to it with the link in your original post. Very nice tutorial though! Covers a lot of things

thanks so much! I just saw the tutorial and I must say that it looks easier to cover the cake board your way, than the way they teach in the wilton fondant and gumpaste class. they teach you to cover the entire board!

thanks so much! icon_biggrin.gif thumbs_up.gif

I cover the entire board on some cakes, usually novelty childrens cakes but for everyday rounds and squares, this is how I do it! thumbs_up.gif Easy peasy...and doesn't use up all your paste! icon_wink.gif

I am soooooooo excited about learning this, I have the same instructions in some books I have but Lorraine you just have a way that makes it all click for people. I think the cakes looks so finished this way. I did this cake yesterday your way of not having fondant under the cake will stop it going all soggy too!

Aine2 you are truly the best! Thank you sooo much for sharing your talent with us all. I am now off to buy heaps of ribbons. Never a bare board for me anymore!!!! thumbs_up.gif

You are the most amazing woman! Thank you so much for showing us this way - it DOES save on the fondant - I always hated when I saw fondant covered boards in books b/c I thought "what a waste of fondant......" (although if it was my own cake I ate it anyway even if it was on the board.....LOL) but now this looks so cool! I can't wait to have an occasion to try it! Thank you so much!!

Btw - the baby tutorial looks cool! I'm hoping to buy it soon (right after I get a little more money - just had a mini cake stuff shopping spree) - but it looks so cute! icon_smile.gif Congrats! I hope you make $$$ from it!
