Hot and humid country

As I can't put my fondant cakes in the fridge as of sweating when they come out any tips?

Hello woodyscakes

Carma’s Massa Ticino Tropic


The above fondant has been developed for use in hot and humid countries. I don't know whether you can source it where you are based.
I thought perhaps this blog might be useful http://faitmaisonblog.com/2013/05/05/how-to-handle-fondant-in-hot-and-humid-singapore/
In the UK we don't really know what it's like to suffer extreme heat and humidity. When we have our 'extreme'
temps I add 1 teaspoon of tylose or gum tragacanth to 500g of fondant to strengthen it for handling.

I hope some of the info helps.
