I am having trouble with my modelling paste.......when I am making eg figures the paste is cracking how can I stop this? I am very new to cake decorating !
what kind of modeling paste?
some of the terms don't translate well from country to country
and even those within my own country can be conflicted and confusing sometimes
What type of modeling paste are you using? you may need to knead shortening into the paste to make it softer to work with.
its Squires kitchen modelling paste and renshaws modelling paste - i'll try the shortening :)
The shortening should work. If you have time, also try making you own. There are a lot of good recipes on CC.
