Frosting would be easier unless you are really confident with fondant and have covered awkward shapes before.

Hi,

I did 46 for an anniversary in Fondant. I cut the cake in half where there was the circle in the middle, dirty iced it and cut a piece of fondant to size so that it was neat and closed it back up. I then piped all the edges to give it a smooth finish.



There are seams, as long as you take your time you should be fine.

Very neat craftmanship. I always opt for simple cake minimal decoration.
