cracking in the edges of the cake? I am making my daughter's birthday cake and the forndant I used in the base board, cracked in the edges. I have not covered the actual cakes, so I'm hoping there's a way of saving the hughe batch of lime green fondant I already tinted! Is there anything I can do with the fondant so that this dos not happen in the actual cake? THANKS!
Try kneading some shortening into it. It may be to dry and that is why it is cracking. Grease up your hands and work some crisco into it.
What brand of fondant are you using? If it's Wilton, work in some veg shortening to soften it up. You'll need to work pretty fast once to start puttin git on the cake. If SatinIce either knead it more to get it softer, put in the microwave for 6-8 seconds then knead, or add veg shortening as a last resort. MMF I have no idea - never use that stuff.
