I am a big fan of cooking shows, especially those on baking. I found this recipe a few months ago from Cake Boss & now it's all I use for my sponge cakes. The secret to this cake being Light & Fluffy is the beating of the eggs. Don't rush that step.
Apply a thin layer of frosting to your cake prior to covering with rolled fondant; this will help the fondant stick. Then, use this fondant smoother to help you easily apply the fondant to the cake while getting rid of wrinkles and puffed areas. Quickly cut strips or trim excess rolled fondant from covered cake bases with a fondant cutter. Visit your local Michaels store or Michaels.com to inspire your inner Cake Boss.
