I don't know what went wrong here, but this recipe turned out pretty awful. When I added the cooked mixture to the sugar, it was too dry and crumbly and couldn't possibly be worked into a dough. My mom ended up adding more water to it to make it workable, but it was still very hard to use and put on a cake. We ended up using a Wilton recipe instead.
This was very good, it was my first time making fondant and I thought it was pretty simple. Ladies who have made and tasted fondant before said this was the best they had tasted. It draped beautiful on the cake. I followed your directions exactly and I will make this again. Thanks for sharing all your hard work to figure out a perfect fondant recipe.
