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 for the tips, i'll try those, but still wondering why it happens when the MMf goes on nice and smooth.

thanks again
