Wedding Cakes: Fondant Coating a Cake

Fondant covering a square cake: knead the fondant with a little corn starch on the table. Make sure there are no dry bits of fondant on the table when you roll it out. Dust off the excess starch with a dry pastry brush. Roll out more than you need. Roll onto pin and unroll over the cake. Skirt out all at corners and sides; work quickly but carefully. Press corners in first- this is where the most tension is, smooth out the sides.

Covering round cake: skirt out and smooth down sides a little at a time
