I'm still working on that wine bottle cake and dh helped me roll out the pieces for the wine box, which are made of fondant. I was turning a piece over today (so that it could continue drying) and it started to crack. I put it down immediately and the crack was barely perceptible. I then used food coloring and clear vanilla to paint on some woodgrain detail. The teeny crack is not visible now but i'm afraid that the next time I touch it, it may crack even more.
Is there some way to reinforce it? The woodgrain detail added a little layer over it, but I'm not sure it will be enough. I could prepare another piece, but it may not be dry by tomorrow (cake is due tomorrow pm). Is there any way to speed drying?
Any help appreciated!!
paint the back with melted choc to give it more strenght
