I think it seems obvious but I can't figure out what I need to add to my fondant to get the elephant skin problem to cease!
It is a dark green so I had to knead a lot of color into it which I am sure is part of the problem (as this has happened before with colored fondant) but what do I do next? Help please!
If you lightly coat a piece of heavy plastic with crisco, then roll out on that flipping the fondant over on to the cake, you should pretty much eliminate that skin your getting.
Ditto! Or you may want to knead a little shortening in the fondant, that works for me. hth
I think you need to knead your fondant some more, warm it up in the microwave for a few seconds - grease your hands and area where you are going to knead and have at it. I'm pretty sure that will fix it.
Thanks, I will give those tips a try!
