Satin Ice Black Fondant

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this question has been asked but does anyone else have frustration with Satin Ice's black fondant? I love the consistency it has, easy to work with etc....BUT when I use it to cut out shapes and it starts to dry, the shapes end up with the "elephant skin". I apply shorting to the piece afterwards - but I wouldn't think to add the shorting prior because the fondant is so moist to being with. Does any one else share my frustration or it is just my craziness?

I have found that I have to knead it a lot to get it more elastic and friendly. Then I keep any extra I'm not using in a plastic bag.

It does dry out fast, so it's not just you. If you keep the pieces covered (I like to put them in a zipper top bag) until you need them they will not dry out and get all wrinkly.
