No Frills Cake - A Tutorial on Covering a Cake Board

"No-Frills", a term used to describe any service or product which the non-essential features have been removed to keep the cost low. A special mention for Malaysia's Air Asia, my inspiration in many ways, and currently is Asia's largest low-fare, no-frills airline with a tagline "Now Everyone Can Fly". Let's apply this to cake decorating and have a no-frills cake. How about a tagline "Now Everyone Can Have A Fondant Decorated Cake"? :)



Step 1: Crumb coat cake with buttercream.


Step 2: Roll out fondant, cover cake and use the fondant smoother to smoothen top and sides, as in the picture.


Step 3: Roll a pizza cutter along the sides. Its the best fondant cutter as it would not drag the fondant as you cut it.

It should look like this...clean and straight.


Step 4: Roll out a long strip. 



Step 5: Position it to cover the board and trim the edges.


It should be like this. No frills, no borders. My type of cake! :)
