Ever since I started teaching at 2 colleges my time doing cakes has been scarce (not to mention almost non-existent). Add to that my carpal tunnel problem which meant that I was not sure how it could affect me kneading fondant.
Well I am happy to say I can still cover a cake in fondant. I made this small cake for Thanksgiving.
The turkey was done last year out of gumpaste and I kept it in storage. It was an extra turkey I made so I was happy to reuse it. I made sure to take lots of breaks to rest the hands as well.
