I need help ASAP!! I stayed up really late last night decorating a graduation cake in fondant. I accidentally glued on a backwards "S" The cake has already been delivered and the customer has called me. She said she tried pulling the "s" to turn it around but the fondant behind it started pulling as well. If she puts it in the refridgerator to make the fondant harder could she peel it off then? Please help me. thank you so much for any advice!!

Tell her to slide a very thin, very sharp knife behind the letter and cut it away. The chances are it will still suffer some damage though, especially if she already tried pulling it and weakened the fondant.

I retrieved the cake, put it in the fridge to let the fondant get hard. When I went to take the "S" off it peeled right off!! A very minimal amount of fondant came off with the "s" (not making a hole) but was able to smooth it out with a wet spatula! scraped the extra fondant off the "s" and put it back on the right way! Yeah!! Easy fix!
