Basic Decorating Technique

Covering the Cake
with
Rolled Fondant

How do you cover a cake with fondant that's perfectly smooth, without wrinkles or air bubbles? The flexibility of fondant is your secret weapon.

Just follow the instructions for the right ways to knead, roll out and lift the fondant, and you will find that covering a cake is easy.

 

1. Prepare cake by lightly covering with buttercream icing.

 

2. Before rolling out fondant,
knead it until it is a workable consistency.
If fondant is sticky, knead in a little confectioner's sugar. Lightly dust your smooth work surface and your rolling pin with confectioner's sugar (white powdered sugar to prevent sticking. Roll out fondant sized to your cake. To keep fondant from sticking, lift and move as you roll. Add more confectioner's sugar if needed.

 

3. Gently lift fondant over rolling pin and position on cake.

 

4. Shape fondant to sides of cake with Easy-Glide Smoother.
We recommend using the Smoother because the pressure of your hands may leave impressions on the fondant.Use the straight edge of the Smoother to mark fondant at the base of cake. Trim off excess fondant using a spatula or sharp knife.

 

5. Smooth and shape fondant on cake using Easy-Glide Smoother. Beginning in the middle of the cake top, move the Smoother outward and down the sides to smooth and shape fondant to the cake and remove air bubbles. If an air bubble appears, insert a pin on an angle, release air and smooth the area again.

 

Your cake is now ready to decorate.
