Does anyone have an idea of how you can preserve figurines that are made of fondant? I have started making cakes with sculpted figures for toppers. People are wanting to save them. I can just see ants or other bugs being drawn to them or humidity turning them into a big glop.
Hi, are the figures made out of fondant only, or gumpaste mixed? If it is with gumpaste mix, put it in a an airtight box and away from direct sun light.
Sorry I cannot help, if they are made out of fondant only.
I'm anxious to see how others answer. Mine are made with 1/2 gumpaste 1/2 fondant. I have a figure that has been sitting in my hutch for over a year. No problems with it. No ants, no glob. Someone else has had theirs for a 1 1/2, also no problems. She has hers sitting inside a china hutch. Wish I could be of more help.
I am new to this, but I am using half fondant and half gumpaste. I just wasn't sure what to tell the people that I make the cakes for. I am using MMF and even when I mix it with gumpaste in the beginning it kind of slouches. Do I need to add more gumpaste or more powdered sugar?
I don't make my fondant so I'm not sure if it reacts differently with the gumpaste? I've never had any problems mixing gumpaste and fondant. I'm hoping someone on here is able to help you out.
