Thanks for the tips girls...
I will definately be giving this one a go at...I love the fondant look on wedding cakes....
You wouldn't have to give the cake a rounded shape or bake it in a contour pan but I think it would be much easier if you did. If you don't, you'll have to add a lot more icing to make sure you don't end up hitting the top edge. I think it would be easier to smooth with a paper towel too if you trimmed off the sharp edge.
