Btw, if your fondant covered cake is driving you crazy with UGLY bubbles, bumps and tears. Then, do this little trick => Cut out some weird and irregular shapes of fondant. Start sticking them on to your cake randomly by brushing some water or corn syrup and voila… all flaws get covered up!

Well, that’s all for today.

Until next time, tata my lovelies :)

    Hi abeer ! Love ur blog . Just a quick question …i will be making a birthday cake for my son and it will be my first fondant cake . Would u recommend refrigerating the cake after its covered with fondant or leaving it out ? Such conflicting info out there ! Thanks .

    Hey zaib, I don’t refrigerate my cakes after covering them in fondant. I have heard some people have successfully been able to do this but it hasn’t worked for me. Any time i have kept my fondant covered cake in the fridge, the fondant started "sweating" and melting AFTER i took it out and it became a disaster.

    This is what i would suggest…. Bake your cakes and prepare your icings ahead of time. Also, try to make all your fondant decorations in advance. That way, on the day of the party… All you have to do is assmeble your cake and decorate it. Keep it at room temperature.

    Good luck :)
