Ladies, do you use this top edger to your fondant covered cake? Does it really give a sharp edge? Thanks. Happy Easter!!!

I was wondering the same thing:)

hmmm.... if it works I'll have to find one!

I have never used it but I remembered seeing it on a blog.  If you want to read about her results, here it is http://www.isugarcoatit.com/2012/12/cool-tools-thursday-give-away.html

Thanks Goreti! Maybe it really helps as long as you know the technique. I'll try to find it.

That would be helpful Maria.  It seems kind of expensive at $20 + shipping from most places.  I would love to get one, but sure would be disappointed if it didn't work.

Well Maria

I can tell you that if you have a nice clean bc crumb coat on your cake, and good clean edges as well, then it will be refelected on your cake when it is covered in fondant. If your cake isn't even or smooth, no amount of edgers will fix it.   Saying that, I have never seen those edgers here in any of the cake supply stores I frequent.    Will have to  google & see where they can be found.  

Found them here Maria. Expensive tho for small pieces of plastic.  Imported from Australia.

Looks like a great idea to me - my edges are usually rubbish, which is why they get decorated................

I really want to use buttercream but ours is a tropical country, so it will just melt. That's why I always use ganache. I have a plastic smoother and it helps me smooth the ganache quickly. In case your ganache dried you can just dip the smoother in hot water then use it again. I need a bigger one, I saw it in Sharon Wee's Creations. Pls. see the picture. Thanks June! Katy this may help you.

Maybe I will ask my relative in Australia to buy it for me in case they will visit the Philippines. Thanks June!!!

Hi Lisa! You can use the icing smoother for your ganache or buttercream before covering the fondant if you don't have the sharp edge smoother. Pls. see my reply to June with the picture above and also where you can get the sharp edge smoother (from June's reply).

I totally agree with Shirley.  I have these smoothers and I love them.  But I find myself going back to my flat smoothers all the time!  Using ganache under your fondant and allowing it to chill before you put your fondant on works best with these smoothers.  The ganache you are able to get a much crisper edge on your iced cake.  And it does not matter what smoother you have if your iced cake does not have square edges.. you are not going to get squared edges with a smoother.  The iced cake under is your best foundation!
