I'm new to using fondant. For my first try, I decided to buy my fondant, just so that it would be easier to work. I soon noticed that my fondant was starting to crack. My cake ended up alright ( I was trying to create a rock finish ) but I was wondering if you had any tips to prevent fondant from drying, maybe you know a brand of fondant that tends to dry less, I don't know.
Thanks, and here is a picture of my cake
Did it crack on the cake??? or when you where working with it???
"The Mat" from Sweetwise is not very expensive and makes covering a cake in fondant and breeze and you NEVER get the elephant skin and craking......check it out here:
yeah exactly, like lelephant skin in fact, I think that this image is very appropriate. (Sorry my last answer was in french) It actually started to crack on my counter top, not on the cake
Also - Fondarific does not dry out at all and you can roll it twice as thin. At least for me it is almost like working with fabric
Thanks pipesqueak, I'll make sure to try it out next time I use fondant
Where can you get it ( I live near Québec )
