I am doing a rather tall structure (boot) and am not sure how to approach the fondant covering. I'm assuming I would use seams (and maybe even section it)?? Anyone know how to do this or recommend a tutorial?

I would like to see the answer, too. But thinking about it, boots do have seams!

I had to make tennis shoes for a cake and I actually took a real shoe and looked at the construction. There are definitely seams all over the place. Soooo, if you have a large piece to cover the boot, I would fold my excess towards the back of the boot and create a rear seam. I also recommend keeping your fondant pretty thick so you don't have many stretching/folding issues and you can pull on it a bit. Then add the extra touches after it is fully covered. Hope that helps. They can be tedious but it is worth it. : ) GOod luck! ~Julie
