Hi ladies,

I just covered a masonite board in fondant (not sure if that will even work well) It pretty much looks perfect, but I am wondering if I should try to wet the fondant underneath where it comes down the sides of the board. Like I said, it looks perfect right now so I don't want to mess with it, unless wetting it will make it stick to the board and be more solid... Please help quickly... icon_wink.gificon_wink.gif

I usually wet the board with a little water before applying the fondant. However, gravity is on your side. It shouldn't go anywhere.

the board holds up to the additional moister? I didn't cover my board in anything before the fondant. Is that what you usually do in addition to dampening it? I wasn't sure if it would get little welts or buckles in the board itself.

thanks for your reply!

I always cover my boards with Wilton foil first then use a little piping getl and then the fondant. This way you can easily remove it all and reuse the masonite boards. But yours should be fine the way it is, especially if you don't plan to reuse the board for another cake.

I usually cover my boards in contact paper or something. Masonite usually has one side that is somewhat sealed anyway. I'm sure you will be fine. I agree with elaine, if you cover first with foil/contact paper/etc. it is easier to clean and re-use the board.

I tried using fondant but my edges kept breaking (any ideas?!).

So I went to Party City and bought the plastic table cloths and use that to cover my boards. It is cheap and looks nice. I just make sure there is icing under the cake so it doesn't slide.
