I don't even remember where I read this, whether it was here or elsewhere.

I always had trouble with folds at the bottom of my cake when covering it with fondant
I read to put the cake over a big coffee can (I used a big peanut can)
that way the folds drop and it's easier. Just cut around it and voila!

I tried this last night and OMG!! It works so very well!!

Thought I'd pass it on, in case anyone missed it
Blessings, marie

Do you mean setting the cake on top of the can?

That's what I always do! Glad it worked for you too icon_biggrin.gif

For anyone else who wants to try it and doesn't have a coffee can, what I usually do is put a cake pan upside down on my turntable, that is a smaller diameter than the cake I am covering...for an 8" cake I will put a 6" pan, for example...of course if the cake is bigger than the turntable you don't have to put anything. For it to work well, the cake needs to be on a board the same size as the cake. Once the fondant is on, you can put the whole thing, board and all, on top of a bigger decorated board.
