New ways of covering a cakeboard in fondant - Page 2

post #16 of 21
I miter my corners at 45 deg angles just like PinkZiab. I take a strip of fondant push it up against the cake then i cut each end at 45 deg angles and I keep doing that as I work my way around all 4 sides and join the cut angles as I go.

Sherri, love that cake.

Beautiful work Cakepro! Sorry if this is a dense questions, but will any of the tools in the Wilton Gumpaste tool set work to do this? I got one a while ago and used 1 thing out of it to make some stuff, would be wonderful if I can learn to use the restt of the kit icon_smile.gif

Wow, thanks so much for the replies, everyone! Sorry for the late response--I'm not getting emails that say there have been updates. This sounds MUCH easier than what I've been doing--making two batches of mmf just for the cakeboard and covering it in pieces because my fondant tears when I roll it that large!

PinkZiab--thanks so much for all of your help! I love the idea of just doing the strip around the outside, cutting out the center and waiting for it to dry.

One last question--Mitering edges just means cutting two strips at 45 degree angles and joining them?

Hi and thanks!

The Wilton GP tools can do lots of neat things but making the skinny indentations in the fondant is best done with a paintbrush handle. I demonstrated this technique again tonight and I couldn't really tell a difference from when I used the veining tool and the paintbrush handle. icon_smile.gif

CakePro, did you miter edges or you just made one long piece? How did you do the four corners? ALso the picture looks like the fondant also comes down around the edge of the cakeboard. Is that what I'm seeing? Thanks so much for the beautiful technique, it adds so much to the cake! I plan on using it on my next cake!

That's what to do. If you look at a picture frame you'll see how all the corners are "mitered" it's the same thing you want to do on your cake board. Your basically just making a frame for your cake.
