Hi all,

I'm working on a large cake replica of a house with smooth walls. Do you have any suggestions on how to do the walls? I was going to freeze the fondant panels for a bit, like i did for a shopping bag cake....But i still got wrinkles. This worked for a shopping bag... but wont work so much if it happens on house walls icon_sad.gif

What would you do?

Thanks!

Have you tried using tempered chocolate?

I have worked with chocolate a little in the past but not enough to feel comfortable yet, will consider looking into it tho! Thanky!

Anyone else?

Pastillage? Or gumpaste? (You would need to make sure to dry them very thoroughly ON FOAM so they don't warp as the dry.)

i thought about doing the gumpaste... think it will set up by Saturday <if i cut them out tomorrow>?

Unfortunately this cake snuck up on me... I'm normally better prepared! 8-o

You should be fine by Saturday...Normally it takes about 48-72 hours...I turn it over every 24 hours so both side dry .... I turn it with the cake board or foam ..so I don't ruin the shape or break it.
