HELLLLP!!! Fondant over fondant?!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm in the middle of cake and my bottom tier is showing chocolate through fondant. Is it possible to lay another layer of fondant over fondant?! Please say yes ūüėĒ

Nvm I just carefully took it off and restarted.

Can you post of picture of the cake so far? It is possible, but I don't think the client would want a double layer of fondant...?

 

I think you'd be better off re-covering that tier as opposed to trying to cover fondant with fondant. You might not get the results you're hoping for. Did you roll the fondant too thin?

Sorry, I posted while you were posting! :)

For future reference: yes, you can have fondant over fondant

It's strange, but I CANNOT do a double layer of fondant.  I get a ton of HUGE air bubbles!

 

What makes it odd is that I always marzipan my cakes just fine...  but a double layer of fondant I cannot do!

Yes but you need to make the bottom layer sticky. Try sugar syrup. The fondant will then stick helping you avoid bubbles.

I always wet the bottom layer of fondant...  still can't do it though.

 

I think it's just me...!! 8-O  I know other cake makers who can do it! LOL!

You could use a gum glue adhesive. About a pea sized piece of gum paste with a tablespoon of water (approx.), or vodka works just as well- the alcohol would be gone by the time you eat it, you only use enough to get it adhered to the cake.

  • Relznik¬†- how do you wet the under-layer ? ¬†I use cold boiled water. By using a fine mister [I use a hairdresser's atomiser], it lays down a fine, complete¬†cover¬†for the top layer to adhere to... I don't marzipan, but I do do double¬†layers of sugarpaste ...

Auzzi - I wet it the same way I would marzipan...  I brush all over with cool boiled water. 

 

I don't know whether the fact I brush with water rather than spraying makes a difference?
