Hi everyone, I need suggestions. Today I covered a cake in fondant which had a frosting crumbcaot underneath. My cake is still wet after two hours. It is humid today and maybe the moisture in the crusting buttercream is also playing it's part I think. Most customers dont like marzipan underneath the fondant, any suggestions as to what I can do. I am starting to get stressed as my cake is for an engagement. Have not had this problem before. Please any suggestions will be great for future cakes.
Thanks in advance Leanne :-0

I always use buttercream under my fondant- did you try putting the frosted cake in the fridge for a while and then put the fondant on? Good luck.
