I am doing a birthday cake for a friend and it needs to be done by tomorrow. It is a two cakes stacked on top of each other with a fondant bow. I iced and decorated the bottom cake and assembled the bow last night. I went to cover my top cake in fondant now but I realised that I had little soft, fresh fondant. I microwaved some oldish hard fondant to soften it and kneaded away, adding trex. I then kneaded both fondants together and now they're just falling apart as I roll. I have kneaded and kneaded but they still crack and fall apart. The cake has to be done by 10:30 tonight as I have school tomorrow. I'm off to a school concert at 7:00 so I can get fondant then if need be but I won't be home until 10:00. I really need tips on how to attempt saving my fondant so I don't do an all nighter... Please help, much appreciated!
What color is your fondant?
sorry, i think your set for a late night.
not all fondant can be saved, if its really dried out. i expect even if it mixes you would have problmes with it once it was o the cake.
Just get/make some new fondant, may cost a few bucks but will save you a lot of time and heartache.
Can you do the cake in buttercream only? Does it have to be fondant?
