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.
