hello bakers i need your help please
i have to prepare for a buffet party and to bake + decorate the cake
i had the cake decoration in my mind, i have an embossing rolling pin i usually use for bows but i want to embose the hol cake
my question for you is the following:
if i imprint the fondant before putting it on the cake will the design fade when smoothing it and setteling it on the cake?
please help me
yes it will fade when you smooth it , I find you have to be very exact when you cover with a patterned fondant , it has to go on exactly with no room for error or much smoothing.
thank you for replying i think i will pass this idea and search for another design
For a round cake, instead of putting the large piece of fondant over the cake and smoothing down, you could try this: Roll out and trim down to a piece that measures the height of the cake/tier by the circumference. That you could fit around the cake without too much stretching. Then roll out and trim down to a circle the size of the cake top and place that on top. Then you would have to find a solution for where they join - piping? crimping?
It's an idea.
I had watched this video earlier and thought it may help you. She uses a mat (which I use) but regardless it's worth watching.
thank you for your repkly dear i will try putting fondant in two pieces someday i want to see if it works for me
about the mat i'm new at this and i thaught that the mat and the rolling pin do the same work wish isn't the case and when i decid to use it on the hole cake i coudn't find out how to do it
thank you for replying you save me from a lot of trouble
and Tjensen the video is defently worth watching
If you try the two-piece method, please let us know how it worked out.
If you go to this Amazon page:
and use the "Look inside" feature you can scroll down to a demonstration of someone using the 2-piece method with textured green fondant.
