Yet another question - sorry :)
I'm icing the cake board I am using and hoping I be able to put the cakes on the board later today, how long do I need to leave the iced cake board before putting the cakes on?
You can do it whenever, you just need to be more careful when the sugarpaste is fresh as it will mark at the drop of a hat. My fresh boards are often decorated with a few butterflies or flowers. They're not there to hide the finger marks, honest
What do you put on the cake board before covering? Edible glue or just water?
Water is fine.
I usually use a pastry brush and brush the cake board with some melted jam. This has always worked for me :)
AI use water too. :-)
AAnother water here :-)
AVegetable shortening (crisco) . Is circumstances allow me to get the board back, I can just lift the old fondant off very easily and in one piece.
You can use a little piping gel, apply it very lightly and you fondant will stick to it very nicely.
