I just wondered if anyone could help me with how to use fondant icing.
I live in Queensland Australia where we have a sub tropical climate, ive been doing novelty cupcakes using fondant icing but am discovering that its not really that easy to use.
As the weather is hotting up it becomes very sticky and soft and unmanagable, after i have iced the cakes they practically drip.
Is there anything i can do or mix into it to harden it up or is this something that i am going to have to use in the winter??
I was using a brand from the supermarkets but was told that it was quite soft and then went on to some more expensive stuff from the baking shop but this also seems no better.
I use chocolate ganache to coat the cupcake before i ice them.
It states in all the books not to put them in the fridge once iced or the cakes sweats underneath but if i leave them just in the pantry at 27 deg they do the same. Help!!!!
