I am about ready to pitch 2lbs of fondant in the trash! I am attempting to do a cake to take to the ICES convention and it just ain't working. I am using a 6x6x6 square dummy cake and I have filed my sharp edges and tried misting it with water as well as coating with Crisco (after the water didn't work) and my fondant tears on the top corners and most of the way across before I can even get my silicone mat totally off of it. I am using Wilton fondant because it is a dummy cake and I didn't want to waste my good stuff. What am I doing wrong? I have tried rolling it thicker. I have tried rolling it thinner to no avail. I have used a ton of Crisco kneading it into the fondant thinking it didn't feel very pliable. Would some of you more seasoned pros help me out? Very frustrated!!!! Thanks.
You might try re-posting your question in another forum other than the Cookies forum and give it a title regarding fondant so that fondant experts will read it.
Oh my! Have no clue how it got here. Thought it was in a how to forum!
