Large Rounds Cakes
Rolled Fondant


In most cases, the smaller your cake, the easier it will be to cover with rolled fondant. However, there is an easy way to position and smooth fondant on cakes that are 12 in. diameter or larger. Follow the steps below to lift fondant onto the cake without tearing.

1. Cover cake lightly with buttercream icing. Roll out fondant sized to your cake.

step 1

2. Slide a large cake circle that has been dusted with confectioners' sugar under the rolled fondant. Lift the circle and the fondant and position over cake. Gently shake the circle to slide the fondant off the board and into position on the cake. Smooth and trim as described above.

step 2


Round cakes are easy to cover with fondant. But what about other geometric shaped cakes?

On squares or hearts
Pull the corner flaps gently out and downward, then smooth to avoid creases.

On petals
Smooth fondant downward in petal divisions for complete coverage.

On Novelty Shaped Cakes
Shaped cakes 
look great covered in fondant!
