I am making my first wedding cake in a few weeks for a competion. I am using a plywood board and I plan on covering it in fondant. Are there any secrets do doing it or is it pretty simple? I read somewhere that you just add a ball of fondant to the board and roll it out on the board correct? Also do you just place the cake directly on the fondant or do you cut a hole to fit the size of the cake then add the cake?

I believe I saw a video on youtube that Pink Cake Box did. Anne had the cake in place and then she put the fondant around it and cut away any extra overhang you have. You may be able to do a search on it to fully see. Wish you luck!

I always would roll out fondant before attaching to a board and I use spacers to make sure it is even in depth. If you cover the board several days ahead of attaching the cake, the fondant will harden nicely and it is much easier to attach the cake without damaging the icing on the board.
