Marshmallow fondant repairs

by Diane
(covington, Louisiana)

Do I grease the rolling pin first before rolling out?

How do I smooth out the marshmallow fondant on the cake? Do I use a paddle, do I grease it or use cornstarch.

How do I repair a tear in the fondant if it is already on the cake?

How far in advance do I cut out decorations and how long do they have to dry.

Thank you, for your help, and your videos were the best teaching tool.


From the editor:

Hi Diane,

When rolling out marshmallow fondant, dust the work surface, your hands and the rolling pin with a mix of corn starch and powdered sugar.

Smooth the fondant on the cake with either a plastic fondant smoother or your hands. If you feel the need to grease the smoother, just use a little cornstarch mixed with powdered sugar.

Depending on how bad the tear is, and where it is on the cake, you can either try smoothing in a tiny piece of fondant to fill it out or cover it with a decoration (usually what I try to do).

Make the decorations up to three weeks in advance and dry at cool room temperature. You can store completed decorations in a loosely covered cardboard box. A shoe box is ideal.

Good luck.

dry fondant NEW
by: jennifer

This is just my first time to do fondant because I got inspired in doing it but the problem is it seems that my fondant is dry and it gets easily cracked. and I keep on searching what seems to be the problem. Is too much kneading and powdered sugar makes it dry? What should I do? Hope you can help me. Thanks!
