Fondant hardens??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This weekend I made Michelle Fosters recipe for fondant. Which I loved the taste. However, I noticed it hardened by the cake cutting time. icon_surprised.gif The bride and groom had to work at cutting into the cake. icon_redface.gif

But... I notice that most fondants do exactly that.

Does anybody have any suggestions to keeping it soft or another fondant that does not harden. I prefer to make mine as opposed to buying, but would rather not use marshmellow fondant (which does not harden that way)

Thand You all in advance!!!

I have used Michele Fosters fondant for a while and love it.It does get a hard outer shell but I have never had trouble cutting through it,and it is soft to eat. I think most fondant does this and they don't taste nearly as good. icon_smile.gif

There has been discussions on here about what knives work best with cutting fondant. That may be something to look into.

I love MFF and find that the little bit of hardness actually adds a nice protective shell to a stacked cake.icon_smile.gif I agree that when you cut it ,it is still soft and yummy and so worth it,easy to make and much cheaper. Just use a sharp knife to cut the cake!
