When I roll out my home-made fondant, the side I intend to show has a million tiny air bubbles, ruining the smooth effect that fondant is supposed to have. Does anyone know why it does this/how to solve the problem?
As in air bubble pockets or actual holes? If it's the pockets, you can take a pin and go diagonally into it and pop it and then lightly use your finger to meld the hole back into the fondant.
I usually get these from kneading wrong.
Yeah..is on the way you are kneading your fondant. It's bringing air into it. THe only way to get rid of it is kneading it the right way and a pin will get rid of the bubbles. If you try to roll the bubble more it would make more bubbles, so, get rid of the bubble as soon as you see it!
