covering a hexagon cake with fondant

I'm pretty comfortable covering a square and round cake with fondant. I bought myself a set of hexagon pans and I want to know how hard is it to cover a hex cake in fondant. Are there any tips I should follow? Thanks icon_smile.gif

easy, just cover as you would a round cake. I think hexagon cake are easier.

Yep, hexagons are easier and scallops are the easiest icon_smile.gif

Work on the corners first, then the sides.

Thank you so much for your advice, I'm not as nervous now.

You could always practice on your tins, since they're new they won't be greasy or have burnt bits on the bottom. Just brush on a bit of shortening, cover, then take off the icing and re-knead.
