Hello! I have only worked with the MMF twice. The first time the humidity was just awful, and it drooped and fell apart. Thank god I was working a practice cake, and not a cake order. The second time it did turn out, but I only used it on an 8 inch round, and made a bow for the top. So my experience is VERY limited.

Yesterday I was asked to be a maid of honor in my favorite cousin's wedding. However, I was also asked to make her cake. It will be July of 2011, but I have so much to do between the MOH job and the cake, so I am starting early.

I need to know a few things:

Is there anything I can do when it's humid to make the MMF work better?
What can I use to give my fondant accents a great sheen or shine?
Does anyone have a tutorial on how to do the fondant drapery?

The cake is going to be three tiers. A 12 inch square, an 10 inch round, and an 8inch square. I need the drapery to go from top to bottom. Thanks for any help!

to make MMF more workable, we would need your recipe first. There are so many recipes, that any advice we give might not work for that recipe.

to give fondant acccents a better sheen. a few options.
1. steam them
2. Use everclear or vodka on them
3. use a small amount of pam spray
4. cake lacqour (sp), cake glaze, aerosal sheen spray
5. airbrush sheen colors.

to make drapes.
You want to see edna's tutuorial on youtube and I think someone said it might be here in the articles or in a sticky.
hopefully someone on here has a link.
