What should I do if my covering paste cracks?

If your covering sugar paste cracks when you cover your cake, there are a few solutions available to you:

- It must be kneaded again for a certain time, until it becomes malleable again and the cracks have disappeared.

- If when kneading it you notice that the cracks are still present, add crisco to rehydrate your covering sugar paste.

- You can also fill the cracks with a mixture of icing sugar and lukewarm water, the mixture must be fluid but not liquid. 0 using a pastry brush you will fill in the small holes on the covering dough.

- If the solutions above don't work, you can place it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it. But be careful, this is the solution of last resort, the microwave can also cook and render your sugar paste cover unusable.
