Sugar on Fondant?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My youngest daughter (okay, she will be 25!) loves anything strawberry.  I am wondering if it is possible to make strawberries from fondant and then coat them with sugar.  A few years ago I tried real strawberries covered in chocolate on her cake, which she loved...but by the time I traveled over an hour to give her the cake, the strawberries had started to 'weep'.  She didn't care, but I thought it looked bad.

 

If it is possible to coat fondant with sugar, what kind of sugar is best?  And can it be done a few days ahead of time? 

 

Thanks to all the experience cakers that are so willing to share their knowledge! Much appreciated!!! thumbs_up.gif

I have seen fondant cakes covered in sprinkles so I don't think sugar would be a problem. You could do crystal sprinkles on it. I have some that look like a clear version of sugar in the raw.

I covered a fondant cake with sanding sugar.  I just brushed the fondant with some water to make it tacky and then pressed the sanding sugar to it to make it stick.  I did the day before the party and the cake had to travel 70 miles away before we ate it.

 

Good luck with whatever you try.

Thanks for your info!  I was wondering if I could make them up a few days ahead; at least I now know they can be done the day before.icon_biggrin.gif  Less stress for this ol' gal. lol
