    stacking cakes

    Tip: If your cake halves are not perfectly even after stacking, trim with a knife.

  • Step 2

    Cutting fondant

    Place the audience template on the bottom of a Black Fondant DecoSheet®. Begin to outline each audience member with small dots using a scriber tool. Using scissors, cut out on the dotted line. Create four audience member strips for each side of the cake. 

    Tip: Make sure to measure the sides of your cake before cutting.
