Hi! Thanks for looking at my post - Its my first time. Can someone please tell me why my fondant keeps ripping every time I drap it over my square cake. I am getting a little frustrated ! (GRRRRR!) Thanks sooooo much!
im thinking your fondant Is too thin or dry so its tearing, could this be your problem? if its too thin it will just keep ripping.
plus try not to have to much over hang, as the weight will pull the rest of fondant down and tear it too x
Make sure to refrigerate your cake so the buttercreams hardens. Make sure your fondant is not to dry. Massage some crisco in your hands and massage some in your fondant..
Move fast, the slower you work, the more it dries .
When you place it, make sure to press your corners first, those are the fastest breaking points in square cakes.
Practice and patience will take care of the rest..
Your fondant should be about 1/4" thick. Especially for your first time with it.
Thanks soo much! Wish me luck!
