I have been asked to make a wedding cake out of 3 different sizes of horseshoes. They want them covered in fondant. I was doing a search here and it looks like they are covered in buttercream. Is it possible to cover it with fondant? I know there won't be a big gap in the middle for smoothing. Not sure I can do it now.

Any suggestions?

Here's some horseshoe cakes that look fondant covered. Perhaps you can contact those who made them directly to get some tips?

I would think (just guessing though, I've never done it) if you rolled out a piece large enough to cover the whole thing - then just cut a slit about half way into the middle it would work.

Thanks indydebi, I guessed I missed those. Thanks leckieanne, I think that would work. I was trying to make it harder than it needs to be, lol.

That and they want me to make an armadillo cake for the groom, so it has put me in a panic.

Thanks again,

I like leckie's suggestion and I think that would probably work. Just be careful not to slit it too high.

I also just wanted to say that I'm jealous about the armadillo...I've always wanted to do one of those icon_smile.gif
