Blending fondant

Hi
I was just wondering how do you blend seams on your cakes or decorations without leaving a line or mark?
I know you can do that with modelling chocolate but is it possible to achieve this smooth transition with fondant?

Hey Yili, if you get the seam as smooth as possible them mix the fondant you have used and water until you get a smooth paste. Using your thumb or a tool work this into the join until smooth and the seam is not visible. Once it is dry you cannot see the seam.

Hi Sarah
Thank you so much for helping out :).This is what i have been doing but it leaves uneven trail. Hard to explain. It is not smooth. I was wondering if there is another way xx

Cakemummy ...

Good question starry delights, sorry I don’t know either but I’ll be following to get tips for this as well. Thanks for posting it! :-)

I use the same way as Sarah if you keep working it then it will smooth so not visible

I use the same method as Sarah and Jo! :)

Sometimes to cover a seam I use royal icing. Just pipe a thin line in your seam, make sure it is exactly the same colour, then wipe off the excess with your finger and it should vanish. (Like using filler on walls!)

+1 for Sara. But With as little water as possible.

I do the same thing as Sarah, Jo, Pauline and neli. Just used it on my mermaid topper ( the right hand wrist and fingers holding on to the shell she is sitting on : http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/96428 )
I had to do it two times though may be my slurry had too much water :-)
