Hi, my first wedding cake , first layer 14 inches , I got the fondant rolled out and on the cake but it is cracking slightly in places . Is there a way to smooth out the cracks ? Thankyou in advance,
a little freaked out
Duff just spackles it royal icing! Use a beveled spatula and spread a tiny bit over the crack to conceal it.
Thankyou for that advice, will try that. Sure sounds better then a complete redo ! I really feel I am over my head with this cake but I have been doing the brides b-day cakes since she was little and she really wants me to do her wedding cake. Once I have the big layer done I think I will be homefree with the smaller layers.
Am so glad I found this site it has loads of good info and advice.
Wow MacsMom, I never would have thought of that! thank you so much for that little tidbit
You can also try putting a little crisco on your fingertip and kind of rub the crack out.
or matching BC
MacsMom, you always share great ideas!!! Thanks, from me to!
What I have done and seems to work is to take the leftover fondant (please say you didn't throw it out!!!), and take a small ammount and dip it into vodka or clear vanilla and make it into a mash and rub it into the cracks. Good luck!
I have done what momyle said... it worked like a dream
Thankyou everyone ! What I have done is made a smaller cake to practice all these ways to conceal the cracks. And no I didn' t throw out the leftovers, it is quite costly to get the readymade Fondant here. In the future I may try to make my own.
THANK YOU LADYONADUNE FOR ASKING THIS QUESTION CUZ I HAD THAT HAPPENING TO MY BLACK CAKE YESTURDAY AND I HAD JUST READ THIS AND DID WHAT MOMMYLE ADVICED AND IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM. I WILL POST THE CAKE THIS WEEKEND
