    Chef #504780's Note:

    This is a great tasting fondant that is very easy and cheap to make. It is much more cost effective than buying Wilton fondant and it tastes great too. I got this recipe from You can flavor this to taste like whatever you want, if using extracts use 1tsp of flavoring; if using candy flavorings (which are VERY concentrated) use no more than 4 drops of flavoring. Glycerin can be found in the cake decorating isle at your local craft store. If you do not have a container of gelatin you can purchase a box and use a single packet of gelatin.

      This recipe is AWESOME! I didn't have to add any extra sugar or shortneing- the recipe came out perfect! This was my first time making or even using fondant. I used a little more extract to my flavoring needs, but overall this recipe is wonderful!! Thanks so much for sharing!

      Having worked with commercial Fondant for the past 4 years I find this Foundant tasting to much like powdered sugar even though i added a flavoring, the sugar over powered the flavoring . As I was was reading the recipe that called for glycerin , it never tell's you when to add this ingredient , I added mine to the luiqid prior to putting it in the sugar. After it turning out dry I added shortening and made it more plyable and am waiting the 24 hour sitting time and also seeing if this dries out like wilton or if its going to be more plyable like fondarific . I am making a Race Car Cake with lots of detail , I will post pictures of it when its done as well as the results of how this recipe turned out air brushing and coloring.
