I just mixed this up and have not decorated the cake yet. However, I've made a few fondants and can already tell this will be my go-to recipe! It mixes up beautifully. In this rural area, I cannot find glycerin so I just added an extra tbsp corn syrup.
I've never even used fondant before, let alone make it from scratch!! This was the first recipe I tried and it was simply AMAZING! It worked like charm and keeps well in the fridge. The only change I made was to substitute Light Corn Syrup for the liquid glucose. Thank you lemoncurd for the great recipe!! I will be using it often :)
This was the first time I had tried to make fondant and found this recipe to be wonderful!! Worked very well for me....I used it about a year ago and forgot to rate it but am organizing my recipes and just found it again....thanks for posting!! : )
I found this very easy to make and use. I even use it as play-doh for young kids who put everything in their mouths.
This is a perfect rolled fondant recipe and is a consistent winner in my kitchen. I only give lemoncurd 3 stars because the recipe is entered verbatim from page 306 of Rose Levy Beranbaum's "The Cake Bible". Please authenticate your recipes with proper credit.
I am no cake decorator. I am just a Mum who every year attempts to make a memorable birthday cake for my under 5 year olds. I also live in the tropics which is a challenge for any icing. Icing has a habit of trying to slip off in the heat and it only takes about 10 minutes. I'm pleased to say that rolled fondant is definitely worth a go. I only decorated the cake hours befor it was needed but the fondant recipe worked well even though I could not find glycerine and ended up leaving it out.
This was really good. THe first cake I made with this I goofed up and gave a four star review (for my fault:() But it did not appear. And am happy to report that I used this fondant for my DB's weddind cake with perfect results. I used parchment to roll and spread on the cakes. I covered 1 12" and 2 8" cakes with 1.5 times this recipe and had some left over too. Will post the photos of the cake (marooned on a deserted love island was my mad cap brother's concept) so one cake had a couple on a raft and then the invite was a message in a bottle and so another cake had a topper of a scroll and a bottle and the third was just an island with a pond surrounded by rocks. I could not make this cake without the invaluable help from my Sister in law Michelle and my aunty Doris. ANd then ofcourse Mean Chef's perfect cover for fruit cakes. Thank you. :) Fay
This was beautiful, but very sticky to work with. I could not grease my hands or spoon enough to keep it from sticking while mixing. I never did get it to a soft, not sticky stage, but when I let it sit overnight, it worked out fine. This made a 8" and 10" at 1/4" thickness.
