hi all

just wondering if anyone else has had this problem, i made a topsie turvie cake and had a BC covering all over, made the MMF and covered the cakes no problem.

Left it out to dry and then after maybe about 1 hr or so i noticed there were big air bubbles forming under the MMF. I smothed them out and found the BC was also moving. I.e softening.

just wondering if anyone has had this problem too, and what did i do wrong that might have caused this. does anyone know if MMF reacts with certian BC's perhaps?

It was a mild day and the MMf seemed to be drying ok otherwise.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance

It's happened to me too - always a bummer -
suggestion 1- as much as possible, start smoothing the fondant from center moving towards the outside
suggestion2 - find a pin or needle and make it your best friend icon_smile.gif clean/sterilize it and *carefully* approach each air bubble from a very low and side angle (hidden as much as possible) and gently poke the bubble and smooth out the air.
good luck!

thanks again
