Hey There - May I ask another question, related? I put round disks of fondant onto my cupcakes that were iced with buttercream last nite.
This morning, they had melted and kind of slumped down over the cupcakes....
1. the fondant discs were made 3 days in advance and had dried out.
2. the decorated cupcakes were placed into closed containers last night.
I just read this in a past forum after searching :I made a cake with gumpaste roses. Straight gumpaste, and the roses had been dried for a good month. I made the mistake of closing the cake up in a cake carrier. In less than three hours the rock hard gumpaste roses and wilted and completely lost their shape. They asorbed moisture even though there was no question about them being completely dried before going in there.
---My question, even though my fondant didn't have Crisco in it, even if it did..This problem would have happened anyways?
How to avoid? Place toppers on at the last moment...But if there is a drive to be made to deliver...Does this always happen?
