    You should not use water on fondant as this will dissolve the sugar if you are trying to smooth out fondant icing that has already dried,. To repair cracks on dried fondant, you should try rubbing a little of the same fondant or solid vegetable shortening over the crack in a circular motion, then using a smother or your hands to rub it in. I hope this will help you.
