Decorating Fondant Experiment

Making cakes beautiful one flower at a time!

Will humidity affect how easy fondant is to work with?

If the humidity is high then the fondant will become sticky and really hard to work with because of the moisture in the air.

The Experiment!

Cake 1: Humidity (low), vanilla cake, white fondant, plastic roller


Cake 2: Humidity (normal), vanilla cake, white fondant, plastic roller


Cake 3: Humidity (high), vanilla cake, white fondant, plastic roller

My Conclusion!

My conclusion is that fondant works best when the humidity is at its normal state. So my hypothesis was right, fondant needs some humidity but not too much because it will then become really sticky and hard to work with.
