I'm doing too many new things at once. First it's cupcakes (but they turned out divine!), cookies, a carrot cake, WASC cake....
Anyway, I'm doing a few fondant flowers and have not worked with the stuff in several years. I'm either going to do roses or some daisy-like flowers formed on empty egg crates . I'm not covering the cake with fondant.
1. Is the gum tex (trag) necessary or will I be just fine without it. I don't have any.
2. After I form my flowers should they sit out at room temp or go in the refridgerator, covered or not? I need the cake for Thanksgiving day - can I form the flowers and trim on the Saturday before or is that too far in advance.
3. I plan on telling everybody not to eat the flowers - they are for decor only, so it doesn't matter what they taste like.
Thanks for any help you can give.
