i know you probably get alot of this post but i dont understand why my fondat is cracking. i use shortening but i dont over use it. pls help its due today
Did you roll it too thick?
i wanted it little thick cause im using a dummy and i had to cut the dummy into a wedge so i didnt want it to show. Would that be a problem?
Usually if it is too thick it does crack. I am not as experienced at most of the other people on here, but one reason why mine cracks is if it is too thick.
I did a search on here a few weeks ago, when my fondant was getting elephant skin. I think it was drying out. I just need to learn to work faster. Fondant will also crack when it starts to dry out.
