Do I cover the styrofoam with shortening first or buttercream first?
I do it with a thin thin coating of piping gel- you don't need a lot and if you use too much, it kind of eats away at the fondant so just make sure it is just tacky to the touch and you should be good!
I cover with Glad press n seal first, then thin layer of clear piping gel. Then add fondant, works soooo nice!
I just put a coating of crisco on it, then the fondant.
Thanks for the info I was wonder the same thing
Thanks, everyone. I went to class and the first 10x4" dummy cake went ok, but the little one 6x4" gave me a lot of trouble. I think the fondant was getting too dry, and maybe it was too thick. I attempted it 3 times and then came home. I will give it a try tomorrow at home where I have more room to move and more patience. Cheers.
