I'm making a shaped car cake and the fondant tore on the hood of the car. The person who ordered it wants a very specific car, 1970 Plymouth GTX, so I can't really add embellishments over the crack. A suggestion I read online recommended repairing with royal icing. Anyone know if this works? Any other ideas? I need to have this cake finished by tomorrow morning. Please help.
If you can't add embellishments, take the fondant off and start over. I'm not sure about the royal icing thing.
I've seen Duff fill in fondant cracks with royal icing, but you would need the exact shade color, and you will still be able to see it if it's in a prominent spot like the hood. I think you'll probably need to take that piece off and replace it.
could you let down some of the original fondant with water and then fill in the cracks with it.
I would take it off and start over for the best look, yes you can fill in cracks with royal but it will show.
