CMC Cellulose Gum from Judee's
One of the key ingredients that can transform your fondant designs is CMC Cellulose Gum. This high-quality product provides the stability and firmness required to achieve professional-looking results. Dalissia, one of our talented Mix Masters, discovered the power of CMC Cellulose Gum in her fondant creations. She shared her experience, saying, "I was having a hard time getting my fondant completely dry and when I would take it out of the fridge, it would get super gooey! That is when I discovered Judee's CMC cellulose gum. I added a little powder to the fondant before I would make a topper and it worked! It hardened quickly and did not get gooey when I took it out of the fridge. I was instantly hooked."
Tips for Flawless Fondant Designs:
Proper Kneading: Begin by kneading your fondant until it becomes smooth, pliable, and free of any lumps or air bubbles. This step is crucial for achieving a seamless finish on your cakes.
Roll it Out: Dust your work surface with a small amount of cornstarch or powdered sugar to prevent sticking. Roll out the fondant evenly using a rolling pin, ensuring that it is large enough to cover your cake or create decorations.
Applying CMC Cellulose Gum: To enhance the firmness of your fondant, incorporate CMC Cellulose Gum into your recipe. Simply add a small amount of the powder to the fondant and knead it well until fully combined. This will help your fondant hold its shape and prevent sagging or tearing.
Perfect Coverage: Gently lift the rolled fondant using a rolling pin or your hands and carefully drape it over your cake. Smooth out any wrinkles or air bubbles using a fondant smoother or your hands, starting from the top and working your way down to the sides.
Adding Decorations: With your fondant firmly in place, let your creativity shine by adding decorative elements. Use fondant molds, cutters, and shaping tools to create intricate designs or sculpt custom toppers. The firmness provided by CMC Cellulose Gum will ensure that your decorations hold their shape beautifully.
