How to Prepare
Know a little more
Our Dr. Oetker Ready to Roll Soft Fondant Icing is ideal for using to cover fruit cakes at Christmas, or birthday cakes all year round - providing a smooth, sheet covering which can then be decorated with piping icing or writing pens. This soft and pliable fondant icing has a light vanilla taste and can be coloured with our Extra Strong Food Colour Gels for a different design. Roll out to use as a cake topper, or mould into models and designs for a more personal touch. Preparation:
Knead the icing until soft and pliable and roll out on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar.
Roll out to a thickness of approx. 5mm (1/4 inch), lifting and turning to ensure the icing does not stick to the surface, until it is the correct size to cover your cake.
Thinly cover your cake with smooth apricot jam or buttercream or for a cake with marzipan moisten with cooled boiled water to secure the icing to the cake.
Use the rolling pin to help lift your icing and drape over the cake.
Smooth into position using the palm of your hand, working from the centre to the edges and down the sides.
Trim away any excess icing using a sharp knife.
To achieve an extra smooth surface, polish with a smoother or the flat of your hand.
Icing is suitable for covering and modelling.
