I'm going to be making little snowmen out of fondant for my christmas orders coming up.My question is should I paint in black food color their eyes or should I pipe black royal icing? everyone will be picking up these cakes and refrig'ing them at least few hours up to a day before their served. Which could hold up better? I don't want the moisture from the fridge to make my snowman look like he was crying with mascara look. If anyone has experience with this gimme your thoughts please! thanks!
Can you roll little dots of black from fondant? That would be my idea. Royal does not like moisture...but I have had paint (food color paint) run on me....
i just made a snow girl and use little dots of black gumpaste for the eyes.....if you use gumpaste make sure to let it dry out before putting it to the snowmen
I painted the eyes of my snowman.
I think rolled fondant would work best. I never have a problem with fondant bleeding through.
Thanks for your help! Cindy
