Long story but can i marzipan a cake today and fondant ice it tomorrow ? i know i was taught you should leave around 3 days between 3 days between as the oils need to dry out in the marzipan and can seep thru the fondant ?!?!

anyone know of i can turn this around quicker as i dont have 3 days ?!?!!?!?

thanks !!!!!!!

I've never worked with marzipan. Hope you find your answer!

I've never heard of having to let it sit! We used marzipan under fondant in my culinary classes and we always did both the same day. I can't recall ever seeing oil seep into the fondant.

I haven't a clue. But if that were so, wouldn't one have to do that with buttercream too? That has some hefty amounts of 'oils'/fats in it. Just askin'...I seriously don't know.

I think that applies more to using royal icing on Marzipan than with fondant. Royal has not fats or oils & breaks down with the marzipan too fresh on the cake but fondant can take the oil. Hope this answers your question icon_smile.gif
