Any suggestions on how to stop fondant cakes from being wet looking.
When I am finished my wedding cakes, I place them in a air conditioned
room. /Some fondant cakes are dry to touch, some are sticky.
I realize it has to do with the weather, but, surely there is
a solution. Does satin ice fondant do the same thing?

What type of fondant are you using?? I use Satin Ice, and have used Fondx. Neither look wet when put on a cake. If you refrigerate your cakes after they are covered they will sweat when bringing them to room temp, but should dry with a flat finish, not a wet look.

Hi All
Thanks for the responses The fondant I use is called Mimac Rolled Fondant. I order it from a supplier. Before I cover my cakes, I crumb coat them, refridgerate, until ready with the fondant. Have the cakes come to room temp, Then I roll out the fondant, and place over the cake.
I don't use veg shortening to roll out my fondant, I have a ratio
of cornstarch and icing sugar for dusting on my table.
This happens when I need to cover the cake on the friday, before the
wedding. Then I put it in my air conditioned room.
I was going to put them in the refridgerator, but, the condensation
would be worse.
