Hey guy's,

Thanks for looking.

So i was wondering if some one would be able to help me in my fondant covering techique?
When i cover my cake in fondant it has a pulling or tearing look on the corners which doesnt look too professional. I try to roll my fondant thinish so the weight doesnt pull it down but the pullinng still happens.
Please look at my attached pic so you can see exactly what i am talking about. I would love to hear some expert opinions.

Have no idea how to attach a photo so please click on my images and i will upload my photo there icon_smile.gif

Thanks again for looking icon_smile.gif

I had that happen all the time. It will be your fondant more than anything else. I doctored my store bought fondant with Jennifer Dontz's fondant recipe. She basically adds chocolate so the elasticity is improved. You have to buy the DVD to get the recipe.

I had issues with tearing with I used the following:

1) Satin Ice by itself
2) Homemade MMF

What has worked was me mixing Satin Ice with Wilton Premade Fondant. I mix 1 box Wilton to about 2lbs Satin Ice. Never had a tear since. My customers like the taste too...more than Wilton or SI by themselves.
