I was suppose to be decorating a cake for a friend... But when I went to torte my cake, my thumb had a run in with the kitchen knife I was using. Had to go to emergency, and now will not be able to decorate anything.

I had all ready covered and decorated the cake board with fondant yesterday and left it to dry... we have postpone the making of the cake for a couple of weeks (when I have use of all digits!), and I am wondering if the covered board will still be usable... it seems like such a waste of fondant!

Advice is greatly appreciated!

last night i finally removed the fondant i had covered a cake plate with for a display dummy cake from a year ago. honestly it looked the same as it did when i originally put it on (except for all the dust!). i think just keep it covered so it can't get dirty and it will keep for a long time. it will be nice and hard so you don't even have to worry about smudging it.

i'm so sorry about your poor thumb! hugs!

Thanks for your reply Metria! My thumb is on the mend and I did the cake tonight and the board was perfect... I think I will do all my boards at least a week prior from now on... the fondant didn't smudge and was great to work with!

Has anyone ever covered a full sheet cake board with homemake MMF? I'm trying to figure out how many batches I would need. I've had a hard time covering a 1/2 sheet board in the past so I am not looking forward to this!

Keep the fondant covered board out of direct sunlight, otherwise it may fade. Pinks and purples seem to fade the fastest. I would cover it with tin foil.
