Stucco Finish

Want to know a secret? You can cover flaws in your fondant by giving it a stucco look!!



I was making a cake for a bridal show and for some darn reason the fondant wasn't working for me. It was just one of those days and you know we all have them.


So I sat there thinking "How can I cover this up without putting too much on it?" Then I remembered this stucco finish that I saw in one of the Wilton books. Can't remember which one though!!



All you need is some thinned down Royal Icing (RI) and a wad of wax paper. Make sure that you scrunch the wax paper a lot so that it is somewhat on the soft side instead of stiff, but not too soft or you won't get any definition.



Next, dip the wax paper into the RI and dab a little onto a paper towel or paper plate to remove excess RI and then start dabbing onto the fondant. Keep going over the fondant until you achieve the look you want. I also used a very small piece to get into the edges. Let dry and then decorate with a border you wish!! Very easy!
