This year I made my traditional Christmas fruit cakes and covered them as usual with almond paste (marzipan). I used apricot jam mixed with some good whiskey to attach the marzipan to the fruit cake as always.
I would normally then cover the marzipan with RI but this year want to use mmf for a change.
My question is do I just brush the marzipan with some apricot jam before applying the fondant or is there something else I can use?
Would the apricot jam be okay between the marzipan and the mmf? Would it go moldy?
Could I just mist the marizpan with water?
Any help greatly appreciated, TIA
Misting with water would work just fine.
I would love to see a picture of a cut piece to see the cross section.
Water is probably a better choise as fruitcakes can be saved for such a long time. But......very lightly brush or mist the back of the fondant piece - not the cake
