I'm sure this has been posted before but I'm having a really hard time with the search function!!

I would just like to know if its necessary to put bc or ganache under your fondan when working with dummies? Or can I just squirt it with some water and cover it?

What do you do??

You can use water or shortening, they both work fine. I wouldn't use ganache or bc unless it's a real cake.

Ditto the above. I've also found it very helpful to cover my dummies in glad press n seal before covering them. Then, you can easily take the fondant/plastic off to reuse.

Thank you! I'm going to wrap with press & seal and then coat with shortening before fondant! You guys are great! icon_smile.gif

You can just coat them with shortening. No wrinkles icon_wink.gif
