How do I get my fondant to look better.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I used to make my own mmf but that has become to time consuming. Now I use the satin ice fondant. The problem is once I cover the cakes it starts to look dry and sometimes it kinda cracks on the corners. Im still a rookie and I need some advice on how to make the fondant look less dry or maybe give it a not too shiny finish (if that makes sense). Please help.

knead shortening into it before rolling out

 

if you already do this --add some more

 

but don't add any more powder to it when you roll it out

I know this may sound crazy but after I cover a cake with Satin Ice I rub the whole thing down with a nice coat of shortening. I wait about an hour or so, then I wipe it off with paper towels. It seems to help with the cracking and elephant skin problem.
