I have a big tear in my fondant that's already on the cake icon_sad.gif It looks horrible. It's for a wedding tomorrow (well TODAY) I don't have enough fondant to redo it (it was my second time anyway!) I'm having a horrible time. How do I fix a tear like that? The icing is showing thru..... Can I use royal icing to glue it back together? Can I use buttercream to camoflauge it????? Crisco and water do not work, tried it already. Tried to patch it, it looked worse. HELP! PLEASE! *tears*

could you just cover it with some embellishment?

Unfortunately it's the layer that is plain except for one heart monogram.... There's no way to cover it. To the right of it is the fondant section that for some reason would not smooth out. I guess it's the back now.... so frustrated!!!! I just want to give up, but I know I can't! I don't know what to do to make it look better... icon_sad.gif

I'd try the buttercream to camoflage it... I think that's your best bet right now.. SO sorry you have to deal with that! icon_sad.gif Best of luck!

I will try some buttercream! It's Wilton fondant icon_sad.gif I don't think I want to ever work with this again! Horrible experience!

The buttercream filled in the gap that the rip left.... so that was better... but it still looks bad icon_sad.gif Do you think it would be okay to revise the design slightly to cover it up? What would you be more upset about at your wedding- a slightly different design or an ugly cake????? *SIGH*
