Hey all CC'ers,
I'm not sure what elephant skin is, but I think my fondant gets it! When I roll it out it gets all these tiny little crack lines.
Could you tell me if that is it and how to fix it?
Have a blessed day.
HI, without seeing a picture it is hard to tell but I would say that it is most likely to dry. If it is premade try working just a bit of shortening into it and see if that helps.
What kind of fondant are you using Lori?
I sometimes use homemade which always seem so stretchy and now I'm using FondX. Even if I use shortening, it still does it.
This batch of Fondx i bought is doing the same thing. It never done it before. But yes, it is elephant skin because it is too dry when rolling with too much ps . but after it steamed it, i couldnt see the elephant skin anymore. Just don't over steam it either. I prefer the taste of Fondx over Satin Ice, but it didnt dry out like that .
Try Fondarific you won't get elephant skin. A little difficult to knead but nice and pliable to work with and it doesn't dry out like other brands. I get mine from fondant source.
i heard fondarific, doesnt hold shape good to make bows. but it does taste great. what is ya'ls opinion. thanks
