How do I get my fondant figurines to have a smooth finish? Mine always seem to have cracks and folds that I can't get smooth! It's so frustrating because it doesn't look as clean as I'd like.
Is there a secret? I've tried really soft fondant/gumpaste, but then it doesn't hold it's shape very well. I've tried rubbing with shortening, but nothing I've tried works.
you could try pm-ing aine2 and check out her videos on youtube, sorry I can't be of more help!
Hi, had the same problem. Don't know if this is the scientific answer......I have not had training, but I find just roll roll roll roll roll rol roll roll roll.........balls in the palm of your hand and then shape them from there once they are smooth. Works for me.
I just looked at your pictures. You do a great job modeling! I agree Aine2 is the authority on figure modeling! She has videos and also has tutorials for sale. Check out her website. Do you use straight fondant? If so try adding just a little tylose powder and see if that helps you. It takes practice and patience to model. Sometimes I get it right on the first try and other times it takes me awhile. I strive to be as good as Aine2, but have a long way to go!
