Ok I'm sure I'm just not thinking about this, the right way. Might be the fact that when attempting it last night it was late. I have tried twice both times a big fail.
I am trying to cover my cake drum with fondant in a checkerboard pattern. Every time I cut the squares out they get stretched by the time I put them on the board. The problem with fixing them is I already have piping gel on the foil so it clings at the slightest touch. Plus then it gets wrinkles from trying to fix it. Its making me want to scream. It should not be this hard.
What am I doing wrong or forgetting? TIA
AYou can cover the board with a thin layer of white fondant first, then cut out your white and black squares (so you won't see anything underneath and the fondant has something to adhere to). Let your square sit for a few minutes before placing them so they won't stretch, but they'll still be pliable. I have also seen people do it with an airbrush and a pattern if you have those available. That's how I would do it.
Thank you I don't have an airbrush...yet..lol That idea would work well with the thin layer of fondant... I have wasted so much as it is can't get any worse at this point..lol ok I put my learning pants back on I'm a big girl now. Thank you.
Yep that worked perfectly!!! Thank you so much. Smckinney
AOh good! I have those late night brain freezes too ;)
