I am having troubles with my fondant skills.. :S
A few weeks ago I agreed to make my mother in laws wedding cake! I am very new at making beautiful cakes, but have made a few fondant cakes in the past and they turned out ok.
The wedding cake is going to be two tiers, covered in white fondant with some small lace details on.
I am in the process of practicing to make the wedding cake and have iced and covered the two tiers in fondant.. The finish is not at all as smooth as I would like it though :(
I am using store bought fondant (Satin Ice) which is very good, but somehow the cakes are looking very bumpy :(
I am using chocolate ganache under the fondant, could that have anything to do with the result?
I am trying to smooth it with my hands and a smoothing tool, but as I am doing that air bubbles seem to appear under the fondant.. Why does this happen? I was very careful to get rid of any air whilst putting the fondant on before smoothing, so im not too sure why they keep popping up now :S
I feel a bit overwhelmed at the moment and starting to think it was a bad idea to agree to make something as important as a wedding cake.. :S
Thank you so much everyone,
