Fondant ripping !

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My go to method for covering a cake is usually smbc. Though today I opted for satin ice fondant and had a few issues. When covering the cake the fondant began to tear at the sides an expose the buttercream beneath. It also began to tear when I tried to smooth it. I also had a major condensation problem because my cake was I'm the fringe prior to me covering it. Was this the cause of all the tearing an ripping? Or may I have rolled the fondant to then ?

Was the icing underneath your fondant hard or soft? Putting it in the freezer for an hour or until it s hard can be very helpful.
Did u knead the fondant long enough? Knead it until it gets pliable.
How thick way the fondant layer? If it was too thin, it might have caused the ripping.

The icing underneath was still pretty hard. i had pulled it out the freezing an placed it in the frige maybe an hour before covering. An I did knead it for a few mins maybe it wasn't as long as I needed to. An I definatley agree that it may have been rolled way to thin. I think next time ill try an roll it out thicker an knead it longer.
