I need to have this cake done by noon today. I used a cream cheese whipped cream icing, which I never tried before. Last night I made the 8 inch x 4 inch outside surrounded in checker board for racing. This morning I took it out to add some more decor & all the black fondant smeared down the side of my perfectly smmoooottthh white icing. I have mushy fondant & black streaks everywhere. Suggestions... How can I fix this???
Oh no! Gawd I hate when things go wrong...
Whipped cream is too wet for fondant, as you now know. You have to use BC with fondant. I had a similar experience when I was new at his and didn't think I needed to crumb coat a display cake for table-top show. My callalillies were a gooey blob, sliding down the cake.
Unofrtunately, you just have to start over with BC. You can add cream cheese to it and use a cream cheese filling
I actually did have cream cheese in the whipped cream frosting. I used the popular one from the site. I also added a little more con. sugar & a stabilizer. Thinking I would be okay. I guess you live & learn. I ended up covering my cake in fondant & remade all my cut-outs. I just made it in time whoo hooo!!
Great save, it's a lovely cake!!
Thanks for the encouraging words!
