Covering Square Cakes with Rolled Fondant

Don’t let the sharp corners of a square cake intimidate you. It’s easy to use your hands to shape fondant around the corners, so you finish with perfectly smooth edges.



step 1

Prepare cake by lightly covering with buttercream icing. Position fondant on cake, smoothing the top with the Easy-Glide Smoother. Pull the corner flaps gently out and away from the cake; smooth the corners with hand to eliminate the creases. Smooth sides with Smoother.

step 2

Trim off excess fondant at bottom with a spatula or sharp knife.

step 3

To give a finished look, smooth top, all sides and bottom edge of cake again with the Smoother.
