AI'm in the middle of cake and my bottom tier is showing chocolate through fondant. Is it possible to lay another layer of fondant over fondant?! Please say yes
ANvm I just carefully took it off and restarted.
Can you post of picture of the cake so far? It is possible, but I don't think the client would want a double layer of fondant...?
I think you'd be better off re-covering that tier as opposed to trying to cover fondant with fondant. You might not get the results you're hoping for. Did you roll the fondant too thin?
Sorry, I posted while you were posting! :)
AFor future reference: yes, you can have fondant over fondant
It's strange, but I CANNOT do a double layer of fondant. I get a ton of HUGE air bubbles!
What makes it odd is that I always marzipan my cakes just fine... but a double layer of fondant I cannot do!
AYes but you need to make the bottom layer sticky. Try sugar syrup. The fondant will then stick helping you avoid bubbles.
I always wet the bottom layer of fondant... still can't do it though.
I think it's just me...!! I know other cake makers who can do it! LOL!
AYou could use a gum glue adhesive. About a pea sized piece of gum paste with a tablespoon of water (approx.), or vodka works just as well- the alcohol would be gone by the time you eat it, you only use enough to get it adhered to the cake.
- Relznik - how do you wet the under-layer ? I use cold boiled water. By using a fine mister [I use a hairdresser's atomiser], it lays down a fine, complete cover for the top layer to adhere to... I don't marzipan, but I do do double layers of sugarpaste ...
Auzzi - I wet it the same way I would marzipan... I brush all over with cool boiled water.
I don't know whether the fact I brush with water rather than spraying makes a difference?
AThank you for all your help! Here is finished cake! And client loved it[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3137449/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
