My first time doing this technique....

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I know it's not perfect...my panels are not precises which is why my top is not centered. I need more practice, but for my first try, what do you guys think?

My first try of that technique wasn't fit to take a photo of.  Going to have to try it again soon.  Yours is excellent! You might get a more delicate look if you can roll your fondant a little thinner.  Love the color.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Thanks everyone! I agree the fondant is not thin enough.. All I had handy was Wilton fondant and you know how bad that sucks!!!! It was a lot of fun to do! Can't wait to try it again! Thanks again everyone! .)

Lea...It's actually very easy! I found this way less stressful than covering the cake with fondant in the traditional sense! No smoothing, no worries about it ripping...no air bubbles!
