Lesson: Fondant can tear or crack if rolled too thin or thick.

Q: How do I fix a broken fondant banner?


  • Spread a coat of melted chocolate on the back.
  • Fill tears and cracks in with another piece of fondant.
  • Smooth edges with fingertips coated in shortening.
  • Cracks can also be smoothed out with an icing smoother or your fingertips.
  • Do not wet your fingers with water, as this will cause the fondant to melt and tear further.
  • If the area is still unsightly, you can always pipe on the spot or place a design over the flaw.
  • A cover-up may be the best solution.
