Covering Boards with Fondant

Give your cake a dramatic look by placing it on a base board covered with fondant. Cut cake boards 2 in. larger in diameter than your cake, unless otherwise directed, then roll out fondant about 1 in. larger than board size. Wrap board with foil.


Step 1: Coat Board

Lightly coat board with piping gel to help the fondant stick to the foil.

Step 2: Roll & Drape Fondant

Roll out fondant to desired size, 1/4 in. thick. Position over board using a rolling pin, draping fondant over edge.

Step 3: Smooth Top & Sides

Trim excess fondant from edges under bottom of board. Smooth top and sides with Easy-Glide Smoother.
