Drying Fondant

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm new to using fondant. For my first try, I decided to buy my fondant, just so that it would be easier to work. I soon noticed that my fondant was starting to crack. My cake ended up alright ( I was trying to create a rock finish ) but I was wondering if you had any tips to prevent fondant from drying, maybe you know a brand of fondant that tends to dry less, I don't know.

 

Thanks, and here is a picture of my cake

"The Mat" from Sweetwise is not very expensive and makes covering a cake in fondant and breeze and you NEVER get the elephant skin and craking......check it out here:

yeah exactly, like lelephant skin in fact, I think that this image is very appropriate. (Sorry my last answer was in french) It actually started to crack on my counter top, not on the cake

Also - Fondarific does not dry out at all and you can roll it twice as thin. At least for me it is almost like working with fabric
