AHi all, I figured i give the new technique of wrapping a cake in wafer paper a go. So i tried it out on a fondant covered styrofoam cake round. I attached it with piping gel and made sure to overlap each sheet by about an inch as recommended in the Craftsy class. At first it was fabulous.... Until the paper dried and cracked! So i was wondering...... Had anyone else has this issue? Is there any way to prevent this? Had anyone used shortening to attach it to the cake?

There are different types of wafer paper out there. There are different thicknesses.  The thicker papers will probably crack.  We are about to carry a thinner one that is flavored and precolored as well. The reason we are carrying a thinner wafer paper is the thicker paper broke on us.  That could be why
