I want to know if there is a true and tried method to placing fondant on a cake, such as specific steps that every decorator uses. Or is every situation different?
Recently I tackled my first fondant cake with Satin Ice, and I seemed to work out ok, but it sweated bad!!!
My a/c stopped working and it was about 80% humidity (im in southern California ), and here are the steps that I did:
- SMBC my cake, chilled till set
- rolled out fondant
- placed fondant on chilled cake
- smoothed and removed air bubbles
- placed back into refrigerator
- Removed to decorate and it sweated profusely!
I've read so many different way's of doing it...such as store in refrigerator once covered with fondant, don't store in refrigerator, box and store in refrigerator, don't cover cake with smbc that is already set...the frosted cake should be at room temperature.
Please help me develop my method.
