I decided to experiment this week. Really have been wanting to do a whimsical/Topsy Turvy cake. With several obstacles overcome, I have the cakes baked, filling spread, buttercream icing on and cakes carved, ready for fondant. I ran the air conditioning on 68 degrees all day in order to make sure I had no issues with my buttercream, today. Unfortunately, the fondant stuck to everything, including corn starch, powdered sugar, and crisco. I still have two batches of fondant to work with tomorrow, but it won't be enough, for the entire cake (10, 8, 6) I live in a small town. Went to both Walmarts. They are both out of glycerin and Michaels has moved this week and is closed down until the new store is open.
It's a good thing this was just experimental. But it does nothing for this newbies confidence. I'll probably cut the cake down to 2 tiers tomorrow and try again. I think I'll run to the store for a vinyl table cloth and give this method of rolling out fondant a try. I'm not giving up, yet.
I am so sorry you had a hard time, don't give up.
Since you are just practicing, why don't you just make simple MMF with the marshmallows and PS! There are some really easy recipes in the recipe section! GL! I am trying my 1st one for a friends B-day for Saturday! Yikes what did I get myself into!
That's a good idea with the MMF. I have wondered how it worked and tasted. Like you said it's an experiment. Now that I've slept and destressed, that sounds like a great idea. Thanks!
