I would like to wrap the sides of a square cake in fonant and have it go above the cake 3/4". I use MMF, but this is WAY too soft for this process. I've heard white chocolate fondant (if frozen) can do this. What are your suggestions? Thanks!!

I do this with satin ice by cutting panels to the size desired, then placing them in the freezer for a bit to firm them up so they can be handled, and then placing them on the cake. This is how we did this cake at Pink Cake Box (the corner pieces were added after. Also the entire cake had been covered in white fondant first). They stuck about a 1/2" above the top of each cake layer to hold in the cherries:

Thanks for the reply. Does anyone know how to do it w/o panels? I'd like to do a solid wrap with an impression on it. Thanks!
