AHi everyone,

Can anyone advise me on why my fondant cakes always have hairline cracks or stretch marks?[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3065605/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

I did knead with shortening and applied shortening on those parts which have this crack. My friend suggested that I could have kneaded my fondant for too long. Could this be it?

This is satin ice btw.

AI use mmf but it does that if it starts to dry out.
