it says to whip the egg white until the are stiff, I never changed tools, I did it in my kitchen aid. Maybe I should of done it by hand?
It wasn't too dry but I wondered about the crisco. It almost looked like I should of rolled it better but I will try more crisco next time. Thank you.
This is just beautiful. Very good. My daughter would love a snow white cake for her birthday, like you I havent used anything but the star tip so you have been an inspiration. Thank you.
Hi all you wonderfully smart cake ladies and gents. I made mm fondant for the first time last Tuesday, and thanks to all of your help I did it correct. My only question about this was when I rolled it out it seemed to have some cracks in it. I was happy with it for my first attempt so I just left it but was wondering should I have added more crisco?
