Colette, your cakes are wonderful, as if a fairytale came to life or they popped out of some magic dreamworld where anything is possible. Every time I try to cover mine in fondant, they just look like they're being used by my dog for pillows.

well, it could be a lot of different reasons,,,the brand of fondant, the crumb coating, the thickness, etc,,,if you could give me details i may be able to help!

I use Fondarific because it's the only brand with a pleasant taste of fondant. In class, we did all the decorations in Fondarific but now that you mention it, I remember the teacher mixing half and half of Fondarific and Satin to cover the cakes. I've been using only Fondarific and I've already tried several fondant thickness variations as well as several variations on the thickness of the frosting layer under the fondant and all the possible combinations for fondant/frosting thickness... To be very honest, I came to believe that I'm not talented for this, I've never been artistically gifted and I am not creative which is another reason (among many) why your cakes are object of my admiration. My cake covered in fondant always looks lumpy and my fingerprints often get imprinted on the fondant... Thank you!
