I sat down with my Cricut Cake again this weekend (and by sat down with I mean stood in my kitchen for hours covered in powered sugar…) and I got down to business on how to get things going with it.
I really need to get some gumtex or tylose powder or get/make some gum paste, but ya know what, I’m a busy girl. I haven’t had time yet.
Anyhow, I incorporated as much powdered sugar into this fondant as it would tolerate in attempt to make it a but more stiff..
If you’re seeing a lot of white, it’s probably too thick.
I roll the fondant pretty thin and then slap carefully place it on the sheet, trying to avoid air bubbles. Then I cut it down following the guides.
If the fondant hangs over that guide line, it’s going to get smushed by the roller thing and it won’t be nice. It’s happened to me several times. Jussayin.
Gibson was pretty unsure about the whole thing. lol
Not perfect, but I’m still learning and hey, I was told that marshmallow fondant probably wouldn’t even work with this! So I think I’m doing alright.
Since these photos were taken, I’ve actually decorated two cakes using the machine! You’ll get to see them soon! I need time to get those posts together!
