Terrific! This was my first time working with fondant. The recipe was easy enough to make without using an electric mixer. I didn't have any shortening so I just sprayed my hands with Pam before starting the kneading, then I didn't need to grease them again after that. Very easy to work with, my daughter's birthday cake came out beautiful!

I used this recipe for a 3 tier blues clues birthday cake and it was perfect! Will use this again and again:)

This was my first time making any fondant. I was a little scared when I dumped out the mixture onto my counter, it looked like a giant mess that was never going to conform into much. But sure enough, as I kneaded, it began to transform! Pretty easy to work with. And a bit messy, but worth it, as it tastes WAY better than bitter store bought fondant. I am going to start making my first cake now decorated with fondant. Thanks for the great recipe! Will use this again!

I've only used store-bought fondant but wanted to save on money so I searched for a good home-made recipe. This recipe surpassed my expectations! It was pretty easy to make, tasted WAY better than the store-bought stuff, and worked perfectly for the little fondant dogs I made for my daughter's birthday cupcakes (you can see a picture of them in the photos). Thanks for an awesome recipe! I will never buy fondant again :)

Just made this yesterday. Wonderful and such an easy recipe especially following the helpful hit from Dukeswalker. My niece will be so happy as she is allergic to eggs. Thanks so very much!!

Very good! I actually used plastic gloves and not that much shortening. When it was too hard (ie from the fridge) I just put it a few seconds in the microwave and voila! I wish I had read dukeswalker advice before though. (Next time I'll try that) It was great, and I'll be using it again and again :)

I love, love, love, love, love!!!! This recipe. It is the best fondant I've ever worked with! Great flavor(not at all like the icky almond-paste stuff, or the terrible pre-rolled stuff) My family was a little skeptical when I mentioned fondant for my sisters bday cake, they were afraid it would be hard. This fondant doesn't get hard. Before I started working with it, I greased my hands with a little shortening, and it rolled like a dream.
