I am having some trouble with fluff landing up on my fondant icing when covering a cake. What measures can I take to prevent this from happening?
I am still learning and would like to start selling cakes as an extra income, but can't give a client a cake with fluff on the icing.
Well, now, I am going to sound really stupid I suppose, but what do you mean by fluff?
And where is this fluff coming from?
Are you talking about lint? It seems that fondant attracts any lint with a radius mile of your work area. Start with your clothing and work surface. Wear a white non-cotton top and wipe your surface down with a lint free material. I use the Lysol wipes but anything lint free works.
thanks guys. i believe i am speaking of lint.
i am afrikaans so the only word i know (well knew) for that was fluff... (blushing!!!!)
thanks for the tips.
