I was rolling out some green fondant for a cake and found it very hard to work with , was hard to nead. slightly dry and when on my cake had slight cracks
Any tips on how i can stop this from happening?
Knead some shortening into it and that should do the trick.
Hello Kerry and welcome to 'our home'
leepat is right........it needs a bit of shortening &/or egg white to soften it up. Go easy, just a bit at a time until it is about the consistency of chewed gum
Thank you, i'll know for the next time
Hi kakeladi thank you for your welcome.
Sounds silly but the left over fondant i put in the micowave for 10 sec (just to see )i warmed my hands and was so much better i gave it a good kneading and it rolled fine (as i havent got any shortening) As i live in the Channel Islands shortening seems very hard to get hold of so ill have to order by internet so i always have in stock. When i do get round to use it i shaljust add a tiny but at a time
