Hello I'm having problems with my fondant. Lately TX is have a lot of humid and is very hot, I have a cooling system not an a/c yet. Once I cover my cake with fondant it starts melting I have added up sugar until it doesnt stick on my fingers but that dont work. I have tried corn starch and nothing. I have 2 cakes for this weekend and don't know what else to do. Do I need to know, anything else that can help the fondant on this humidity? Please let me know! thank you.
Hi, we've been having ridiculously humid weather in my wonderful dry heated desert, so much so that my MMF blob was almost thrown across my kitchen last night! =) I added some tyloose to my fondant and was able to make it work properly. I don't know if I would recommend that for covering a cake, I've never tried it, but the tyloose helps with the fondant accents! Good luck!!
Same thing here...after covering the cakes, the fondant sags and droops to the bottom. it's so sticky that the fondant smoother sticks to the surface. I had a little bit of luck with smearing my smoother in powdered sugar and that help it to glide over the surface better, but didn't prevent the drooping completely.
I don't have AC - very few homes here in Germany do because we don't need them usually.
