Hi I am somehow new to this and I have been working on a 3d horse, I freeze my cake to carve it I add the butter cream and then the fondant.... well I guess I should have waited because now the cake looks as if it was sweating.... my questions are, will the wet fondant eventually dry? do I have to redo it? will it crack? I welcome any advice. Thank You!

The moisture on the fondant will eventually evaporate and you will get dry fondant. No, it should not crack as a result of the condensation.

i think that's a beautiful horse. it should dry, as long as it's not due tonight and as long as it's not very humid in your area.

I don't know much about the drying time but I had to say that that's a great horse!! And, I kinda like the shiny-ness!!

I live in Hawaii and as soon as I take my cakes out side they start to "sweat" nobody has ever said anything about it. I really thing us "cake-people" are the only ones who worry about it. (ps. the cake is beautiful) SARAH

Your horse looks fantastic, I agree with SarahJane, we are our own worse critics, (except maybe husbands that is icon_rolleyes.gif ) You did a great job.
