   1. Cut all cakes to level and well trimmed. Crumb coat all the cakes with
        sufficient amount of butter cream. Placed all cakes on the board.
   2. Best to cool the cake in the refrigerator if your work area is warm during

       kneading.

       your palms.

       pouch, roll FondX evenly about 3/16 inches thick.

Why does rolled fondant often cracks and tearing?
   •   There are several different reason why it cracks, here are some ideas:
       Not enough kneading time, what this means that the rolled fondant is
       still in stiff status. Give it more kneading time. Don't knead too much
       all at one time.
   •   The fondant is already aged due to time in transit or sitting on some
       warehouse.
   •   It may be just not a good quality rolled fondant to begin with.
