What would cause fondant to crack over night? I kept it in a cool oven(electric)....the collar on the black leather jacket cake I made was cracked and had to be remade the next morning, it was purchased from Sugar art..............it was fine to work with...is it because the collar was to thick o heavy?
sounds like it had more powdered sugar in it than necessary.
It was purchased so wouldn't the ingredients be right? I got it at Global Sugart Art....
what did you roll it out on? powdered sugar? cause that can dry it out, even if not instantly. or even if you were working it too much, and it was in the air for too long.
did your oven have any residual warmth, cause that would have done it too.
Actually I didnt use anything because of it being black.....I used a sheet of plastic to roll it out on......the oven was not warm at all....I didn't cover the cake at all maybe thats it...
Don't know if I'm right or not.
I've been living with the drought in Texas. I've been dealing with cracking, elephant skin, you name it. I started rolling with a thin film of shortening on my surface and my pin. I also roll like it's pie dough, only in one direction and then do a 1/4 turn.
Hth and good luck.
