Hi,

I'm working on a cake and am using a newer easier tappits method that uses powdered sugar. The tappits letters are now dry (they are gumpaste), but dmeven though I tried to brush off the excess sugar, it's still on them. The gumpaste is black so it really stands out.

Recs?

I would try to lightly rub some Crisco on the letters using a brush. Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif

I just roll out the fondant until it quite thin (setting 6 on the pasta machine if I remember correctly) let it dry a bit and the Tappits work fine. No powdered sugar at all.

The suggestions you've received will work since it's already on there.

Leah, can I ask what you are rolling the fondant on to? What is under it and how does it not stick if you are not using any powdered sugar?

Thanks

(Just got my Funky Tappits in the mail 2 days ago...looking to try them tomorrow!)

I roll it thru the pasta roller. It's a little machine. However, if I roll in on the counter, I rub a thin film of veg shortening onto the counter.
