I need to make a cake by next saturday. This is my second time using fondant and I have some questions. How early can I cover the cake in fondant? Could I do it 3 days early or will the fondant dry out? What is a good fondant recipe (I used Wilton last time and it was disgusting)? What are some good filling recipes that do not require refridgeration?

This is an odd question but I am going to make some corn on the cob to go on the top of the cake out of rice krispies that is covered in fondant and I was wondering if anyone saw Duff goes Hollywood on Ace of Cakes where they created corn on the cob? They used a tool to create the bumbs and I was wondering if anyone knew what tool they used?

I did not see that one but I did see a picture in a magazine of corn on the cob cupcakes. They took three cupcakes and put them side by side and then frosted the top to look at a corn cob. Then they took yellow jelly beans and put them on top to look like the kernels. You could also use white ones.
