I KEEP GETTING ELEPHANT SKIN ( I USE SATIN ICE) SHOULD I ADD A LITTLE CRISCO TO IT. OR DOES IT HAPPEN FROM TOO MUCH KNEADING ?? HELP
I have had this happen before too. One thing i found i was doing was covering the cake in the breeze from the window. What helps with the skin problem is rolling your fondant out on a matt, just lightly grease your matt, then roll to the needed diameter, then flip the matt fondant and all over your cake, peal the matt off and you will have the nice moist side of the fondant facing up. A little crisco can help to smooth fine lines out too.
If you knead it too long, it will start to dry slightly on the surface, and then slightly crackle as you stretch it on the cake. A little crisco should help, but don't overdo it or you'll make it too soft and you'll have other grief
THANK-YOU LADIES I WILL TRY THOSE IDEAS!!
