post #16 of 22

I know I won't ever use a pin to get air bubbles out after hearing your experience.  I am glad it worked out.

Exactly!

Just for the future use a pin with a dark coloured plastic head. that way you will notice it better. where there any airpocket s  when you placed the last layer of fondant on the cake? cos if so, the pin couldn't have gone into the fondant if you used it to release the air pockets. I never ever leave the pin down. I prick it on to my apron and I am very cautious of it.. now I will be even more cautious, after reading your post. good luck

The first thing I was taught about removing air bubbles from fondant was you must use a pin with a bright coloured head, never use a plain pin, and always pin it to the front of your apron, never ever put it on the bench.  Make it a habit and you will never have to go through this again

Here's my advice for the future: Get a BIG safety pin, and bend it open so its easy to hold and use. Put a nice, long, BRIGHT piece of ribbon through the loopdy loo circle of the pin, and tie a knot in the ribbon. You can hang it in a convenient place, wear it around your neck, or pin it to your shirt while working with the air bubbles. It would be might hard to lose on the floor, and certainly hard to lose in a cake. For what it's worth...

Use a needle with a bright long thread. This is a lesson to be learnt for all of us.I hope you find the pin somewhere else other than the cake.

I use acupunture needles for air bubbles - they are fantastic!  Makes your pins look like crow-bars in comparison.

 

They are super fine and long and only have a small ball head.

I keep a pin cushion beside me and it always goes back in there...... or clenched between my teeth!  haha
