I made a birthday cake a few days ago and used regal ice to make a beach brolly and palm tree but after being on the cake less than 30 seconds they were flopping, i only had to touch them and they turned watery in my hand and soft, the weather has been very hot but i cant think why it would be so bad?
i got some hardening powder from a small cake shop and was told to mix this in my icing and it would harden but when i used this nothing changed. can anyone help? i have a birthday cake to make for my niece next week and realy dont want the same to happen
What kind of icing are you talking about? Like a buttercream or fondant? What is the stuff you got to harden it called?
You can add tylose powder to fondant to make it harden. If that is what they gave you maybe you didnt add enough. I would try to add more tylose powder and give it another go.
thank you i will give it a try, do you know how long it takes to harden? minutes or over night etc? thanks again xx
