How to prevent dark colored marshmallow fondant from cracking?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I am hoping that someone can help me out here. Recently my marshmallow fondant cracks when I color it in any dark colors. Once I lay the fondant on the cake it will start cracking down from the edges of the cake or once I've set the fondant down and finished the cake it will literally start sagging down. It makes it very difficult and stressful during transportation to delivery location. Can someone please help me please?

Try kneading in a little glycerine or corn syrup. I would add it to an experiment piece to see if it will work. I just added corn syrup this past weekend to some dark(black) and light (white MMF painted silver) fondant that I made that seemed rubbery and cracking. Add by teaspoons to small amounts of fondant or by the tablespoon for larger amounts,let rest in plastic for at least an hour or overnight, until you reach the consistency that is desired! I hope this helps.
