Im making a tiered cake with fondant ( my first one) I wanted to start today to make sure its perfect for sunday. How do I store it? Will the MMF dry out and crack? I have 4 days til I need it all done. Im going to try to do zebra stripes... any suggestions?
One suggestion would be to have it covered in shortening, plastic wrap all around, and store in an air-tight bag or container. GL!
Don't forget the shorting when u cover it in plastic... If u don't u get a huge mess. Trust me ive dont it and it's not pretty lol.. You'll be fine as long as you store things the right way
this might be a stupid question but how do u get the shortening off after u store it? So its not all shiny?
Once you knead the fondant before using it, that will make the shininess go away.
I wouldn't worry about shininess though; my first concern is just getting the fondant to look nice on the cake. And I personally am not shy with using shortening and cornstarch to help me with the process.
Are you asking about storing the cake after you've covered it? If so, the fondant will not crack.
Oh, in that case, I totally misread the question. Sorry!
Your fondant won't dry out and crack. I usually just cover my cakes with one of these to keep any stray dust off:
I buy them at the dollar store.
oooo...I like that! It's going right onto my wish list!
To OP: If you store it airtight after decorated, the fondant with moisten and go limp. Hence, this awesome cover! =)
