Always have problems covering the sides of cakes!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone!

 

I recently started using fondant on my cakes and I ALWAYS seem to have problems with covering the sides of cakes, especially the last few inches/centimeters I have left to adhere to the cake.  :( Of course, I make the neater side the front of the cake, but the back side looks rather messy, and I really want to fix that.  Any tips? I hope this all makes sense icon_sad.gif TIA!!!

Satin Ice has a nice range of tutorials and several deal with covering a cake--round & square.

This utube video is to help with using the tool called "the mat"
im not telling you to buy the mat, even though after watching this video I do want to buy it lol. Anyways at the end of the viedo she talks about how to smooth the fondant onto your cake just a few inches at a time all around the cake rather than smoothing the cake all at once....I found the video very informative.
