No, not that kind of puddle!
This week I made my first cake with a fondant/gumpaste dog, dog dish, cat, etc placed on buttercream. A few hours later I noticed an area around the base of each one that looked like a little, narrow puddle. What would cause that to happen? Do you put something under your fondant figures before placing them on buttercream? Or do you not put them on buttercream?
Thanks for your help.
IDK but I saw something like that on Ace of Cakes with the pinto car...
What kind of fondant did you use? Did you let the figures dry well before putting them on the cake? Was there alot of humidity?
I used 50/50 of Wilton fondant and gumpaste. It had dried for a week. Yes, very humid as I live in the hot and humid south of US although I keep the house at a comfortable temp.
The only reason I can think of for your figures to melt like that would be the humidity. If you had your cake in the refrigerator and placed the figures on it while the cake was still cold, possibly condensation could have caused your problem. Sorry I can't be more help. Luckily I haven't had that happen to me.
Now that you mention it, even though I wasn't aware of it at the time, the center of the cake could have been still cold. I'll have to watch that next time. Thanks for the help.
At least he went on the paper huh???
