Hello! I am a new member and after looking over this site I was hoping someone would be able to answer a few questions concerning wedding cakes. I made a 4-teir round fondant covered wedding cake for my sister a year ago, and now my youngest sister is getting married and has asked me to make hers. They want a 5-teir square wedding cake covered with fondant. I have heard that square cakes are more difficult to cover in fondant than round ones, so I am wondering if you have any tips or pointers? Also, do you have any advice for filling and assembling the cake? Such as, the kind of dowel rods or separators work best? How about decorating with fresh flowers for the topper? Do I need to arrange the flowers first in some kind of florist foam, or can they be pressed into the fondant? Anything that you would like to share that you think might be helpful would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Rozanne - you’re too sweet.  Sadly, I’m not as happy with my fondant covered cakes as I am with buttercream or ganache covered ones, but I’m not ready to give up on them yet.

Domesticdiva85 - search the forums for postings by pastryprince1… he’s a professional cake designer and recently posted fabulous tips for covering square cakes with fondant.  (you can find him if you click on “member list” under the gold medal seal above)
