Im new to making cakes and my sister asked me to make a Tangled cake for her daughters birthday. I made the tower out of RKT and covered it with MMF then made the mistake of putting it in the freezer. It is now really sticky and moist. Is there a way i can fix this or do i need to start all over?
have you tried putting powdered sugar and cornstarch(50/50) on it? slightly rub it in so all the moisture gets absorbed. i never put my fondant in a freezer but i always use this mix to fix the stickiness.
thank you i will try that and hope it works. what is the best way to store a finished project?
this should help
When my fondant gets sticky i stick it in front of a fan on high. Make sure not to touch or bump it. The fan dries the fondant for me every time. I've never tried cornstarch or powdered sugar to fix dampness on fondant I would be worried it would clump or stick to fondant.
I store my fondant pieces in a cool dry room. They harden up better.
i usually steam by fondant for a couple of seconds(finished product) so there are no clumps.
thank yall so much! The powdered sugar worked like a charm. I first tried applying it with my hands but that was a lil messy. So i dug around till i found a foam brush like you use for paint and stains and it worked perfectly. Thanks again everyone
