Let me start off by saying I HATE CC's search function....

Ok i have an order for 100 2 x2 cakes covered in green and pink poured fondant... I saw somewhere that I could "melt" down my fondant (satin ice) in a sugar syrup... is this true? or should i use a poured fondant recipe?? (please suggest one!) Then when i make these, do i frost them before I pour the fondant on?? And is poured fondant see through?? and how can I make it not, if it is?
Thanks a bunch- Toni

some people cover the cakes with a layer of marzipan or ice the top and some just use plain and then use the poured fondant. I have seen also that you can cover the cakes in fondant then use the poured fondant. which makes the cakes look very clean looking!!

I just received my latest issue of ACD. I just glanced at it and saw there were cupcakes made with poured fondant as one of the feature articles. Sorry, didn't have a chance to read it. Do you get ACD?

Does the fondant set solid like rolled fondant?

I really like it and haven't had any issues, but I know a LOT of people have trouble getting their first issues, etc.
