im making hearts on wire from black fondant do i need to add gumpaste to the fondant? pretty sure i, do but how much! whats the ratio?
Hi, its best if you can add gumpaste to the fondant. You need to add 50/50 gumpaste and fondant.
Hello, I just add a bit of gumtex to the fondant then do my shaping...let it dry, hope that helps...
I did a cake with stars on wires and I used just MMF and nothing added. I cut them out and let them dry for a few days and they worked just fine without adding tylose etc.
When I add items to wires I use a 70/70 mixture so that I know they will dry hard. Don't want issue when I transport the cake. Good Luck
Sorry I had a typo I use a 70/30 mixture.
I recommend not transporting the cake with the stars in the cake, put them in at the location!
I agree.... transporting with the wires in place could cause them to slip and tear your fondant or make a mess of your bc.
I also just add a bit of gumtex to my fondant so they dry hard. Just make sure you allow them to dry out for a couple of days.
