My latest cake (in profile) has a large statement flower on it. I made yesterday (cake due today) and when I tried to apply the pearl centers last night at 1 a.m., some of the petals broke. I repaired it but was worried that the same thing would happen this morning when I would attempt to put it on the cake as it probably would not dry it time. I remembered someone posting about putting fondant figurines in the oven overnight with just the oven light on to dry them more quickly so I tried it and it worked like a dream!!! It was completely dried and I was able to handle it without any further breakage!
Thank goodness for CC tips and tricks I have picked up along the way. Just wanted to give a shoutout!
tsal, that is a beautiful cake. Your SMBC looks so smooth I thought it was fondant for a minute.
Yes, we learn so many helpful tip from this site and all of them make us better at what we love to do. I myself have also learned alot and love this site.
AThanks!! It is fondant - I don't think I described it well in the description. I'm half asleep from staying up late caking! I'll have to edit the description when I get home.
One thing that bugs me though is the bow. I thought I'd try something different and put the bow off to the side, but in the pic I think it just looks kind of weird!
Some things I only notice afterwards in the pictures - grr!
I didn't even notice it. Ok so either put it off more on the side or back in front. No biggy.
