- Your cake must be completely cooled, add a thick coating of icing to the cake. (gives a smooth finsh and helps fondand to adhere to the cake. Figure what size you need to cover your cake. (9 inch cake with 3 inch sides 3+9+3=15 plus 1 for extra so you need a 16 inch circle cut.).
- Do not store cake in refrigerator once the fondant is placed on cake. Moisture will destroy the surface. Store in a sealed container.
