Please share your tips for achieving the smoothest fondant. Do you roll it thinner/thicker, let your crumb coat sit longer/shorter, use a particular brand of fondant, etc?

Hi there, when I cover my cakes with fondant, I use only one particular brand. That works well for me. Then I don't roll it two thinly. Put a good coat of icing, a bit thicker than a crumbcoat. Some put them in the fridge, but I don't. I ice the cake before I roll the fondant. By the time I'm ready put the fondant on, the icing has settled nicely. icon_smile.gif
