Fondant Cake (Precaucions)
The fondant cake is very beautiful and very popular in the United States and Europe . It is also widely used in coverage cupcakes and other personalized ornaments .
Below are some cares to correctly conserve the cake :
1 . The fondant cake should be stored in the refrigerator , it is sensitive to low temperatures . If you still prefer to place it in the refrigerator after the party ( leftovers ) try wrapping it in a plastic sheet to prevent its fast drying ;
2 . Avoid humid places, because the paste made of sugar absorbs moistures, changing physical appearance and flavor ;
3 . If you are getting a whipped cream with garnish of fondant ( cake topper , little flowers or little hearts ) try to placed on the cake a few moment before starting the celebration . You should also kept out of the fridge in a cool and dry place ;
4 . Some kinds of fillings do not fit well with the fondant . This is because the fondant does not accept a more stringent cooling . Fruits in general are avoided ;
5 . Cakes made with whipped cream are more light for consumption , fondant cakes are more usually heavier in this composition , I mean , people generally feel satiated with less amount of cake when you compared to the whipped cream . Fondant cake needs to have more stronger structure to support the weight of the mass;
6 . Fondant cakes are not so wet (fillings) when you compare to whipped cream cakes , this does not necessarily imply that they should be dry ! The reason is when you make a wet filling , it tends to lose it firmness and support causing occasional landslides . However , you can avoid this limitation by adding more hydrogenated products ( margarine , etc. ) for their manufacture ;
7 . In rainy days is natural that the cake looks a little wet ( externally ) . However some ornaments can break off, over the cake, without notice . To solve this problem , close the windows and on the air conditioner in room temperature , 24 degrees . Dry air should make the cake gradually return to its original appearance. If the party is in the next day , store the cake in a cardboard box or leave some piece of newspaper "near" to help remove the humidity ;
8 .The fondant cake is relatively heavier than the traditional whipped cream cakes , take care to transport it . Try to support the base with your hand palm before you move it avoiding inopportune accidents .
9 . Last and important recommendation...use a very sharp knife to cut your cake (not spatula cake, please!)
