You might have to start over, unfortunately. Fondant forms itself to whatever shape it's on. so all the bumps and lumps of RCT will show. You should have covered the RCT in royal icing first, got it smooth and then fondant.HTHkelleygirl

You can also add a teaspoon of wilton white-white in...
What's a PITA fee?
When I first joined this site. I was looking thru the pics and I came across a pic where the poster said her dog had eaten a hole in the middle of the cake and she repaired it. I was so disgusted by it. My instructor told me once that her pet rabbit jumped on her cake when the client's son took the rabbit out of his hutch.
