Hi and welcome back to my kitchen. For me one of the most important things when it comes to making cakes is making sure you have a well covered cake as a base to add your design. Now I usually refer to it as icing, but icing is exactly the same as fondant or sugarpaste, and in this video tutorial I show you how to prepare your cake, and cover it to get smooth sides and that sharp edge along the top.

I have put a link to all the equipment that I used in this video on my blog at: http://www.cakesbylynz.co.uk/index.php/2017/12/how-to-prepare-and-cover-a-cake-with-icing-fondant
