I am building a robot for my son's birthday and want to cover the base cake board with MMF.
How soon is too soon to cover it? Will it dry out and crack? Does it shrink as it dries? Is MMF even the right medium for this?
I was hoping to cover it tonight, party is Sunday but I have never done this before and was hoping someone had some pointers...any other tips about this I should know?
Thanks a bunch!
no such soon as too soon for this job! doing it now means it will harden up a bit, but it shouldnt dry out and crack or shrink.
i usually roll my fondant out on the board, i dont use anything to stick it down, sometimes il use a wee spray of water though.
Cover your board ahead of time, you want it to dry. I use a bit of Karo syrup if the fondant doesn't want to stick. I'm sure a spritz of water on the board would do the same.
MMF works fine, but I use wilton for mine...good use of my michaels coupon every week is to buy wilton fondant for boards and figures.
