I am great with fondant on regular sized cake but how do I cover mini cakes with fondant? Do I roll it out thinner? Would it be easier to use poured? I just don't know. I need these to be flawless. Thanks for your help.

I've never done it, but poured fondant would seem to be the way to go.....

well i just covered some mini cakes (dolls) in fondant...and the couple that i did...well i did them all but only like two were not covered by a flowing dress...but rather laid tight on we covered as i would a normal other cake...and it worked fine...
however, poured sounds like a great way to go!!!!

I did these not too long ago. I rolled the fondant just like always but I cut out circles using a teacup saucer as a guide to lay over them then I smoothed with my hands and cut the excess at the bottom off.
They were about 21/2 inches and I had torted them

I've played around with MMF just for the sake of learning. I think it would be a lot of work working with smaller pieces in fondant, but then again I've not perfected it yet. I'm experimenting with a mold for petit fours and thats working out well. I used almond bark, but don't really like it for the covering. I've not tried poured either, but from what I've seen of other mini cakes, you would probably need to use more than one coating of poured fondant for a flawless look, especially if it is thin. Experiment a bit with a few cakes to see which works better. You can always thin or thicken the poured fondant
