i wouldn't say i'm NEW to the fondant world, i'm just still learning. does anyone have a problem rolling out large amounts of fondant? does it get easier or softer as it gets to room temperature?
AND does it matter how long it takes you to get the fondant just right? I mean, i know it will harden but i'm always nervous with it if i don't get the look i wanted right away.
fondant gets easier to work the warmer it gets - usually the warmth of your hands will soften it up the best, you don't want to work with cool fondant.... kneeding the fondant is the hardest thing to do in my book.
It is difficult to roll a large piece of fondant but as long as your working the fondant and not just letting it sit there - it will not harden on you. I hope this helps.
