I'm making my first fondant covered cake next week and I have a question I'm hoping someone will be able to answer for me.
I am making a rocket cake using the Wilton football cake pan. The cake will be covered and decorated with fondant. Then the cake will be placed on a fondant covered cake board which will be decorated as outter space. My question is: Do I put the cake on a cake board that has been cut to the shape of the rocket (football), cover it and decorate it with fondant, THEN place the board and cake on the fondant covered board? Or do I place the cake on the fondant covered board and then cover it and decorate it with fondant? If so, I don't want to cut the fondant on the cakeboard when I'm trimming the fondant after I cover the rocket (football) - how do I avoid this? I appreciate any suggestions
