Tips when working with Fondarific:

  • Sometime you may get a shiny coating from fondant that is too soft and could be difficult to paint on. Let the fondant sit out at room temperature until firm.
  • If you require a more firm fondant base, you may mix ½ gum paste and ½ fondant or 1 tsp of Tylose powder per ½ pound of fondant.
  • Fondant that is too soft: Weather or over-microwaving your fondant can play a part in how your fondant reacts. If the weather is hot and humid, you may encounter soft, buttery fondant. If this happens, set it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes or leave at room temperature until firm.  When ready to use, knead the buttery coating (bloom) back into your fondant. As you roll your fondant out, roll and flip this makes it much easier to roll. Follow the above steps if you over-microwave.
  • Fondant that is too hard: Weather that is dry and cold can affect your fondant, making it hard to roll out. You will want to put your fondant in the microwave for 10 seconds a pound check it about every 20 seconds for hot spots. All microwaves have different power settings, therefore it is important to use a low setting when warming the fondant. If the weather is dry, you can add about ½ teaspoon of Glycerin per pound to help soften and make the fondant more pliable.
