I'm making a cake for a local college that is to be delivered on Monday morning, but i have a busy week and weekend ahead of me.. im doing a wood texture on the bottom part of my cake so i was wondering -
Its Tuesday today, can i roll out my fondant, press the impression sheet on it to get the texture i want then let it sit until Sunday when i assemble my cake, or will it be rock hard? Would refridgerating it help? Would i have to store it air-tight?
Please help! Todays my only completely free day until Saturday night and Sunday!!
What I would try is leaving it on my Ateco mat after I roll it out and impression it and then cover it with saran wrap to where no air gets in. Might work. I would think, just like staying in a ziploc bag that if no air gets to it, it should stay moist and soft.
I'm not an expert but fruit cakes covered with fondant seem to be alright for a long time!!!!!
If you can wrap them in saran wrap and place them in a ziplock baggie they should be okay. I have not had any dry out doing this. I wouldn't paint them because paint is not going to dry. Doing the impressions on them should be fine.
