Can you put fondant on a box cake?
Moreover, can you use fondant on any type of cake?
Using Fondant Fondant is a playdough-like sugar paste that can be rolled out and draped over a simple or sculpted cake. It is usually kneaded until very silky and pliable and can be used to create a smooth seamless finish on cakes in any color.
Also, how far in advance can you make a fondant covered cake? Fondant: Fondant can be made 1 day before, up to 5 weeks before cake is due. To store fondant, wrap well in plastic wrap, and place inside an airtight container. Keep at room temperature, away from sunlight.
Also to know, how do you cover a cake with fondant for beginners?
HOW TO APPLY FONDANT
- Gently lift one edge of the fondant and place one clean hand and forearm under the fondant.
- Lift and center the fondant over the cake and gently lower it down.
- Gently slide a fondant smoother all over the top of the cake to remove any air bubbles that might be under it.
How long does fondant last on a cake?
If you want to store the cake for more than a few days, freeze it for up to 1 year. Put the entire cake in the fridge for 30 minutes so the fondant firms up. Remove it from the fridge and cover it tightly with plastic wrap.
