I need to colour a cake in Red fondant, i have bought the ready coloured poppy red regal ice sugarpaste fondant.
However i find this icing quite sticky and hard to work with, so to cover a cae would you recommend i cover it with white fondant then do a thin layer of red, or should i just cover the whole cake in red icing?
If the fondant is sticky you may want to knead in powdered sugar to make it more powdery soft rather than sticky. You may find it a whole lot easier to work with once you get the right consistancy.
Thanks, anyone else got any opinions on this?
I coat my hands and surface with shortening to combat the stickiness. It will also give your fondant a nice shine and you won't have any powdered sugar or corn starch marks on the fondant.
