I've been asked to make a fake 4 tier for a wedding on august 27th. Is it to early to cover the dummies? Will the fondant dry out? I'd love to start handpainting it now
Although I'm not an expert, I would imagine a dummy can be covered as far ahead as you like! The fondant WILL dry but shouldn't crack or look bad!
It's a dummy cake..........they keep darn near forever. Do you really care if the fondant dries out? No one is planning to eat the "cake" right? Cover and paint at any time.
Thanks so much ladies
ahhhh.... just the post I was looking for! Wanted to make sure my show cake was ok sitting on the counter for two weeks...
