ok, i know this has come up already and Torta has made a turtorial and given some fantastic advice! but i think i found a product that will make some of your fondant decorating a little easier. i found this product but was a little reluctant in purchasing it because it was a little on the pricey side at $19.99. But, after ordering it i have absolutely NO regrets!!!! this little piece of plastic is a life and time saver. what is this miracle tool you ask? well, it’s the Sharp Top Edger by Edgers found at:
i used it on a square “gift box” cake that i did and it is great. i did my buttercream layer using the upside down method and then did the sides of fondant using the “panel” method. the fondant lid is what i used the edger for and it took all of 2 mins if that!!! i can’t tell you what a great product this is. i haven’t tried it on a round cake yet, but i don’t foresee any problems arising using this tool.
Hope this helps some of you trying to achieve that “sharp” edge look on your fondant.
