I have made several cakes and was wondering how to make the edges of the cake very sharp. The cake seems to have very sharp edges until I put the fondant on the cake and it some how becomes very rounded. Is there something that I can do to make the edges very sharp and have a clean edge?
Try using two fondant smoothers at the same time. (I think Wilton smoothers are only $5.) To see the technique, check out this video.
The entire (7 minute) video is good, but she starts demonstrating how to do the nice sharp corners around the 6 minute mark. I hope that helps. Good luck!
i cut the cakes edges before i ice and then put the cake in the fridge to stiffen up, then put the fondant on and use fondant smoothers.
Yep, same type of technique as you see in the above mentioned youtube video with the 2 fondant smoothers.
Thanks so much!!! You all are such a big help!!!
