I'm in the middle of constructing a 3-tier fondant cake and it's going to take quite a while longer for me to finish the details. The sun has just peeked its head into my kitchen. I'm beginning to worry because my kitchen has a skylight. I'm detailing, then stacking tiers at the end. Can I cover the tiers loosely with a towel to prevent fading, or is that too airtight? I don't want them to get gummy. Thanks!

I think a towel would be fine. Setting them on a counter that's not in the sunlight when you're not working on them would probably work too.

Why not put the cakes you're not working on into boxes?

Oh, I didn't think of that. I usually love our house with all of the large windows and skylights...just not when the light shines right on my workspace. icon_smile.gif Thanks.
