Ripped Fondant

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I tried to cover a 14" round in fondant. The height was about 8". Im not completely new to fondant but I am new to covering large cakes. 3 times I tried to get fondant on the cake. It ripped every time. What is the easiest way to cover larger layered cakes?

Could you be rolling it too thin? Sweetwise has a great video on fondant techniques and problems on their website. Watch it and you may find your answer. icon_biggrin.gif

I always had better luck covering lg cakes by rolling out my fondant on a thick plastic/vinyl mat.
Once it is the size you want, l;oosen it from the mat by lifting it all the way around but leave it on the mat. Turn the mat upside down over the cake and peel the fondant off. Usually it falls off rather easily.

I have never been able to get fondant on any other way. I do this for every cake.
