I am making a few dummy cakes to be on display at a photographers place and I was wondering if a white fondant cake would turn yellow over time? Are there any tricks to adding something to fondant so it keeps it's colour?
How long are you thinking, over time? I've had some fondant covered dummies that were good for 4 or 5 months, then I peeled and re-covered them. 1 faded after 2 months or so because the sun shined on it.
The sun really plays a part in it. I have had several fade. I'm pretty sure that IndyDebi said she had a white cake that turned yellow in the sun and then turned back to white. You could PM her and ask. =o)
I was thinking for about 4-5 months. Someone told me a long time ago to put in cream of tartar. Obviously I haven't tried that so I don't know if it would work or not...
Thank you for your replies.
It should be fine as long as it's not in direct sun.
I've had dummies for years and they look great.
