My first Converse sneaker and the nightmare continues... sorry, it doesn't continue, it turns into a thriller!!!!!
Let me tell you about my shoe box. I wanted to make it black as you can see and I thought I should add some brown powder color to help the black get darker sooner. Yes I know, I already had problems with the red color but I thought to myself for darker colors it should be OK, the small dots will not show.
So I added a knife's tip of brown powder and the usual black wilton gel color.
Sufficient to say that in less than a minute my fondant was all ruined!!!! I do not know what's in that brown color but my fondant almost instantly lost all elasticity and separated into crumbs!
I tried to fix it, by adding honey by adding butter,by heating it in the microwave for 10 secs, nothing worked.
Please believe me when I tell you that I spent 2 and half hours just to cover the shoe box!!!!!!!!!!!!
I tried 5 times to cover it, but every time it would break into several pieces when placing it on the cake. I ended up covering it side by side and still had plenty of difficulties while doing so.
It was horrible and nerve wracking.
So I am Wilton's no 1 fan again.
I hate powdered colors!
The sneaker came out larger then anticipated, but at least now I have a reference point.
