Can anyone advise....im doing a baby shower cake that will have fondant tree bark panels , I want to remove those before cutting and serving cake, how do I keep the fondant from pulling off the buttercream with it? Is there something I could put between the two, and attach bark to that with piping gel?
Oh my gosh, I haven't a clue! Could you make the bark from modeling chocolate instead of fondant. It tastes good, so no need to remove it.
Thanks Sandra, I've already bought chocolate fondant, but to get those deep lines for the bark it has to be a little thicker than normal, I was trying to figure out how to just peel off the bark and not have the buttercream underneath come off with it.
I usually hate fondant, but I do love Satin Ice Chocolate fondant, tastes like Tootsie Rolls. I wouldn't even worry about it. If people don't want to eat it, they can just leave it on their plate, but chocolate is so yummy, I bet it gets eaten!
Oh, I didn't mean that Satin Ice was the only yummy chocolate fondant. It is just the only one I've ever had. I most of the time make my own fondant.
I agree with Sandra. Leave the fondant on. I also have satin ice chocolate fondant...super yummy tootsie roll flavour. I have my own homemade chocolate fondant recipe which also tastes like tootsie rolls. And I’ve made bark type panels, and they don’t have to be thick. Add a smidge of tylose, roll, imprint, then pop into freezer until firm. Usually 10 minutes. Remove and promptly apply to the cake.
if you want to remove the panels just have a little spatula in your hand and a little tub of icing ready to add on a dab of fresh bc if necessary & just smooth it over -- easy peasy
but no you want the fondant to stick to the bc -- just give it a spatula swipe after removing -- you could slide the spatula down the back of the panel as you remove it -- but I wouldn't layer anything between there --
I KNEW -K8 would have the sensible solution! Why oh why do we overthink things! Brilliant and easy peasy!
