This dinosaur fondant is my third attempts. My first fondant (which I made in early Feb)melted after sitting in the room temperature for 5 hours, I thought it could be because of the condensation from the cold buttercream underneath the fondant cake. I placed my second attempts inside the freezer then fridge before moved the dinosaur figurines to the room temperature as suggested by a web forum discussion, it was a wrong decision! The dinosaur became sticky and very messy!
Thanks to bloggers who try to help me figure out the fondant melting issue, special thanks to Li Shuan from Helena's Kitchen for telling me about the Tylose Powder. I managed to find more information on it from The Sugar Lane about mixing Tylose Powder into fondant to turn the dough into quick gumpaste. For the first timer like me, I find information on The Sugar Lane really helpful. Phoon Huat didn't sell Tylose Powder, it has Sugar Paste Modelling Gum as subsitute. The powder really do wonder, it hardens the fondant and contains the melting issue.
Anyway, I've order a fondant cake for my son after couldn't resolve the fondant sweating issue for 3 weeks. Of course I'll be making another cake for him to bring to school to celebrate with his teachers and classmates since so much resources and effort has been put in :)
The leftover fondant, make into a flower. The blue fondant is mixing the white fondant with blue icing colour. Lovely blue :)

Really can't save on the cost for this icing colour, my whole box of normal food colouring didn't help but accelerate the fondant in melting.
