Help asap!! In a few hours I will be decorating a July 4th cake. I made fondant stars four days ago and they hardened nicely. I placed them on a cookie sheet after I cut them out. I wanted to get a head start and started to remove them and they are cracking when I take them off.
Should I have put them on something other than a cookie sheet? This never happened before.
Is there anything I can do at this last minute to get them off without cracking?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Deep breath...You should have used parchment paper on the cookie sheet - next time try that.
As for this time when you need them off the sheet: Could you use a wide spatula to run under each to try to remove without damaging? Possibly, wet a towel in HOT water and then place the cookie sheet on top for a minute(?) or until they loosen up a bit - caution: They may soften if warmed too much, so be careful, but it won't matter if they soften a bit if you are placing them directly on the cake. Best of luck!
Thank You Everyone for your help.
I tried the first one to begin with and used the fan and it worked!
I'll remember everyone's advice in the future!
If you add tylose powder to your fondat you can make new ones and used them right away!
