|Meet Jewel Sparkles and her pet cat|
I'm pretty happy with how my fondant figure turned out. I am also happy with the letter patches that I made. They had different patterns and colors. I think they are really cute. However, I had major problems when I covered the actual cake.
(1) I ran out of Tylose powder, which I use to make my fondant more stable and prevent it from tearing. I visited all the stores that sell baking supplies in the city, but each one ran out of Tylose too.
(2) It was too hot when I made this cake. We don't have air conditioning in our kitchen. My fondant was sweating like crazy!!!
See the cracks and the wrinkles? I was really stressed over those! My cake would have been perfect if they didn't happen! I don't want this to ever happen again, so I immediately contacted my online suppliers and ordered a kilo of tylose powder. One thing that I should really watch out for is running low on supplies and ingredients. I should never allow it to happen again.
Thankfully, the birthday girl still enjoyed her birthday cake. I was so relieved!
