Could someone please offer help with draping fondant. I use Wilton fondant and it has a tendency to get soft depending on the weather. I live in Texas and it can be VERY humid. Any help is sooooo appreciated.
I've only done draping once on my daughters cake and I use Wilton. What I now know that would have helped is to wait and not put it on so soon after rolling. I would also try mixing a little bit of gumpaste or tylose in the fondant. This should help.
You should PM Sweetwise because I think Kathy is really good at drapes.
I made some for this cake and used half fondant, half gumpaste:
like this in the link?
If its humid I would use extra dusting with cs or corn starch, and just fold it like it was material.....podwer your fingers well, and then I use a clean thick paint brush to brush excess from drapes lightly, hth
You tube has some videos on how to do them. This one is done by Norm from Sweet Life Bakery
