Guess I should have closed the house up today! Getting a Nor'easter coming through although it didn't rain most of the day...but used some precolored red fondant for a McQueen car cake and man, that stuff was getting shinier and shinier as it sat on my cake, and wetter and wetter. And sticky. *sigh* I hope it dries off and looks better for tomorrow.

My frosting has been sagging too, maybe I'm putting too much of a "mist" of water on it before the fondant.

This just feels like a bad cake week. LOL. Five orders...three down, two to go.

Roll out your fondant, cover with plastic wrap, then ice your cake. Immediately when you are done smoothing it out, place your fondant. Then, no need for water misting!

HTH!

But then the frosting won't give a nice hard surface to smooth down on....right?

I used to do that but then it was easier to do it cold, when I worked at the caterers.

Hmm maybe its my icing...at the caterer they used non crusting....at home I use mostly crusting b/c I prefer the taste. Maybe the non crusting would hold a corner better. Hmmmm....

Thanks!
