So I am making a couple 3 tier dummies for an event saturday... i covered my cakes in spackle which didnt look too great so i fondanted them... anyways alll the fondant melted
So what do i cover a dummy in that wont make my fondant melt??? I know i put tooo much spackle on (its not bc!) but i need to fill in some cracks/dimples & need it to dry asap..... Please help!! Im on the verge of tears right now... im going to stand and talk to 1000 people saturday my biggest event yet....
u can fill any cracks with ri or bc - it doesnt need to be dry (i dont think!) before you can use fondant.
can i cover the whole thing in royal??????
you can yes, but getting royal icing truly smooth is a talent that takes time, at least on real cake, i imagine on dummies too.
if you dont want to use fondant, and are experienced in buttercream, you can just do buttercream.
I cover dummies all the time. Sand the edges lightly, fill any large depressions with royal or buttercream. Let dry a few minutes. Spritz with a bit of water and then cover with fondant. Don't touch the covered dummies for a few hours so that a crust forms. If you get too excited and try to stack the cake too soon you will get a lot of finger dimples. The fondant will look better once it has dried.
