thanks so much, i just did my first hatbox cake and I used four pieces of 6" cake board buttercreamed together then covered in white chocolate, it turned out okay, just not great...........thanks again for the tip will try that next time, seems way easier and more "foodie"
Awesome instructions--thanks! I'm also confused by the gumpaste/fondant thing though. Sounds like the bottom of the lid is GP and the sides and top are fondant? Am I getting this right? Does this help minimize the weight or something? Thanks!
