Looking for inspiration? Top Bananas! the Mumsnet cookbook is packed with great recipes your family will love.
DD is 2 on June 20th and although I am not 100% sure what am I doing yet I am tempted by a garden cake with ladybirds, bees etc. Just wondering when I can make them? I don't know if they will be eaten. Maybe by my brother who loves eating large chunks of icing.Thanks
Fonant icing will last for ever either in the fridge or not. Wouldn't fancy eating it after a couple of days though!
Thanks Maureen, I think I'll do them a day or 2 before in case anyone wants to eat them.
Don't put fondant on the fridge, it will make it sweat. Jus make your models and leave them open to the air to dry out and they will last indefinitely. I've just thrown out a cake dummy and models I made a year ago as it was just starting to fade.
I would usually do them a week before to give them a chance to harden, don't put them in a fridge or a plastic box , I usually leave mine on baking part covered by more or a paper box.
I do mine in advance. Agree don't put in fridge. If they need to be moved/bent into place on the cake don't make in advance.
