Hi all!  I'm a beginner that needs some adivce!  I'm doing a preggo belly cake for my friend's baby shower and she wants a "striped shirt" design over the belly but I'm not sure how to go about it!  Should I lay white fondant and put the strips over it, is there a trick to get the fondant smooth against other pieces so it looks seamless?  Any other ideas or suggestions?

all i know is from watching cake competitions on tv
but it strikes me that you should roll the white fondant a little thick and then put the strips on and roll it together until it looks like you want it  before putting it on the cake----------
or paint the stripes on

That sounds pretty do-able to me.  Sometimes I make things harder than they should be.  I just want to make sure that it looks smooth and not have holes between the stripes.  Thank!!
