I am new at the cake decorating thing and I have never taken any classes. I made a cake for my boyfriend's birthday of us sitting on the couch watching TV because we do that all the time. Anyway, I carved the cake, covered it in fondant, and then covered it a cake dome because I didn't want the fondant to crack. I came home from work and... oops! The fondant became so soft, it tore all over the place and the cake started falling apart. I sadly attempted to salvage the cake, but my boyfriend still enjoyed it. I certainly learned my lesson.
(And by the way, this site is TOTALLY addictive... I check it about 6 times a day.)
Hi...fondant has to breath, dry some to the air if that makes sense. If it's covered up, it can get soft and then you have problems.
Awww how sad! It looks like it was really cute, too.
Hey it looks like you did a great job on those little details like the remote and it's eny tiny buttons!
You did nice work on your couch cake. Lots of details.
Thank you! You guys are so nice!
What a nice job! So cute.
