Fondant Questions

post #1 of 3

How long does fondant take to dry? I am cutting several shapes from rolled fondant and want to apply them around the sides of a fondant covered cake. Also, whole it is drying will the edges crack? If so, how do I prevent it?

Are these going directly on the sides of the cake? If so, why are you drying them? I usually walk away for a minute or two to let them stiff just enough so they don't loose shape. Then I turn the shapes over to smooth the edges & apply to cake.

If you let them dry completely, & are trying to place them with the curve of the cake, they will crack. I'm not sure if I am explaining that well.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

You made a very good point. I do need the pieces to curve around the cake. Because the pieces need to come up higher than the top I thought if I let them dry first it would be easier, so the top didn't slump over.
