I made a cake for a friend and had to let it sit out because I  edible paper to cover it with fondant around the edges for trim...Now the fondant has dried and it looks crunchy....any tips on what i can do to soften it up without wrecking the papered sections? Any help would be great!! Never worked with the paper before and its super but i can't get it wet or it will run.

i mean i have rubbed shortening onto already applied fondant but i mean if yours has already crossed over into looking crunchy... don't know how effective it would be--but i've definitely done that before so it might be worth a try?

and can you test an out of the way area first?--shoulda thought to mention that first--


when i've done it --after a while it kind of blends/absorbs in so -- don't know how much you can blend around your special decor or how close you can get--


good luck
