I heard this was the way to get black without adding too much of the gel. I do love this recipe for all my fondant.

I just added until it had a nice brown color. Though you don’t want to use to much as it can make the mmf dry. You can aff a little brown gel food color to make it more brown.

I always store my cakes in the fridge and have a small problem with condensation when the cake is out of the fridge. I always decorate the day before but add more delicate flowers and so on the day.

The airbubbles comes when the fondant is kneaded too much. I also struggles with many air bubbles in store bought fondant but found that it can be cut down to a mini mum if the fondant is slightly cold. Also give it a round with the fondant smoother before covering the cake can also help.

I was wondering I had planned to cover the cake and decorate 3 days prior to party and just leave in the fridge but just read somewhere that you shouldn’t do that? What do you recommend just decorating the day before and leaving it out ? I really appreciate your time.

You can also use it for cooking and baking.

This is the first recipe that doesn’t have melted chocolate chips in it, or a stand up mixer. I’m going to give this a test this week for a cake that I’m going to make for Easter.

You should not add all the icing sugar at once. But add more on the next day. It is more flexible than regular fondant so you need to be a little more careful when trimming the cake.

And it was also hard to roll out the dough I thought I could build muscle. It kept shrinking in when I rolled it out. So when I put it on my cake and cut the edge, the edge started to shrink and looked kinda hang. Please advice.

I don’t have any specific measures

I was wondering if the fondant can be used for covering shapes. I am wanting to make Minnie Mouse ears using styrofoam balls and a bow. DO you know if fondant will work to cover ears or should I try a different material. Thanks in advance for any tips.

I make a zebra cake. Ifirst put white all over the cake let it freeze then put some black on it. if you stick in in the freezer thigh make sure to give it hours of thaw time because marshmallow freezes more than other frosting
