Please, any tips? It's been on a while and don't know how ti get it off of the cake dummie.. Maybe I'm the dummie
Yep. Easiest way in the world: Put dummy in thick plastic bag. Whack on ground. Rotate until it's cracked off most of the way. Pick off remaining pieces. Done.
Edited to add: no hot water mess, no slimy fondant, no splashing water, no stab wounds from trying to pry pieces off...yeah. Easiest way.
I thought i read somewhere on here where someone just soaked the whole thing in hot water.
I soaked and scrubbed- took a while!
Ohhhh, that worked! And it was fun beating up a cake Usually have to be sooo careful with real cake. Thanks Jamie!! I bet hot water would work too, but this was more fun.
I just stick my spatula under the lip of fondant and slide it down and it starts to come right off....
Just a tip for the future...if you cover in Glad Press N Seal, you can then easily peel it right off for the next creation I use a light coat of piping gel over the Glad.
Right...ok, so what I'm referring to is when the fondant is dried on there rock hard.
which is what mine was - stuck on there rock hard - couldn't get a knife or anything under it. I will try the press and seal next time. Thanks!
I put mine in the dishwasher. works like a charm.
Dishwasher, really? All covered in fondant?
If it fits in the dishwasher it is the best and neatest method.
I'm glad other people had this problem. Last week I decided to take the fondant off my dummy cake and had the hardest time. I used a knife and eventually got it off but it was very difficult. Thanks for all the tips....
I would never put that kind of thing in a dish washer unless it is one that has a built in garbage disposal and can handle chunks of food. Otherwise you risk blocking your pipes. Possibility: You run it and some gummy stuff gets stuck somewhere int here. You open and unload the dishwasher and the stuff dries rock hard again and breaks something the next time you run it.
I've done it ever since B Keith Ryder told me about it in class. Have never had an issue. Once I had a small hunk that didn't rinse off and I just washed it off under the faucet. My machine has the option of high heat wash, so if I'm doing especially large dummies or something with lots of fondant, I use that.
I had some that the fondant was rock hard and didn't want to pick it off. I put them in the proof box for about an hour and it softened up and peeled right off...that way you don't have to damage the dummy in the process of picking it off. Good luck!
Definitely the dishwasher!
Given that the fondant is essentially hardened sugar, the water and heat just melt it off. I run them thru with the extra heater on, no soap, and then air dry. I get nice clean dummies and no damage.
Yeah, I kinda damaged mine a little when I first tried picking off the fondant. Maybe dishwasher is the way to go.
