Ugh. I'm makign my own birthday cake for tomorrow and things are not going well.
I bought Choco pan since it was the only pre-coloured fondant I could get in lime green. WEll, it's not co-operating. It's tearing and rolling out funny plus I can't get it thin at all!
Remind me NEVER to use it again!!!!
Okay, vent over. Back to my cake
It may be too late for this to help, but you could try adding a little shortening to it. This makes it more pliable and less subject to tearing. Also, if it's too sticky, you could add a little powdered sugar to stiffen it up. But even if it doesn't, I hope you're having a really happy birthday!!!
I hate chocopan.
I have used the dark chocopan quite a few times for wedding cakes. I have never had any problem with it. But you never know with any brand how it will work. I hate the fondarific. Have had nothing but problems with the 5 colors that I had to purchase. Ended up using satin ice last minute.
know it won't help but you can warm it for a few seconds to make it work better. Just a few seconds in the microwave. Just like with the fondant.
also.. you can get one of the fondants in the lime greent.. I think it is satin ice.
they do both pastel and bright colors. I had a bright pink and lime green wedding and it was great.
Feel bad that your making your own birthday cake.. Happy Birthday!!
