Ok, so Wilton has changed their fondant...it's soft and tastes better, but it doesn't DRY! They solved one problem but created another. I put a ton of Tylose in it to make figures and it just doesn't dry. Anyone else having this problem? This will get expensive if I have to add that much Tylose every time. Now what?
Is it possible to adhere a fondant/gum paste belt to a butter cream cake??? Will it be too heavy to hold itself up? I have no idea how to go about this.
The one in the photo looks like a REAL belt attatched to butter cream. I don't understand how this was attatched to the buttercream without messing it up unless maybe they chilled the cake well.
If I can't figure this out I will have to rest the belt on the cake board which will not look as nice as the cake in...
I use a ball of fondant 2 inches smaller than I want the ball to be. Just put the fondant ball on top of a small piece of foil wrapped cake board and then on top of your butter cream. The fondant will stay soft enough for you to stick wires in while you work on it. See wedding cake on page 2 of my photos for example.
