    The Veganista's Note:

    This is a great substitute for marshmallow fondant or rolled fondant. If you're vegan you probably know that marshmallows and gelatin are not vegan. Use agar agar flakes as a substitute for the gelatin and if you're out of Glucose, substitute with light corn syrup. The light corn syrup will make the fondant softer though.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    roll

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon agar-agar flakes
    • 2 teaspoons agar-agar flakes
    • 1/4 cup cold water
    • 1/2 cup liquid glucose (There is a glucose mixture that Wilton sells, but you can use light corn syrup, you'll just get a so)
    • 2 tablespoons solid vegetable shortening
    • 1 tablespoon glycerin
    • 8 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (about 2 lbs., 8 cups is a lot, plan on using more like 6. The 8 really makes it stiff and dry or cra)
    • food coloring, as desired (icing color)
    • flavoring, as desired

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine agar flakes and cold water; let stand until thick. Place mixture on stove and boil 5 minutes, or until dissolved. Remove from stove add glucose and shortening, and mix until shortening dissolves. Add glycerin, flavoring and color. Cool until lukewarm (should happen pretty quickly). Next, place 4 cups confectioner's sugar in a bowl and make a well. Pour the lukewarm agar mixture into the well and stir with a wooden spoon, mixing in sugar and adding more, a little at a time, until stickiness disappears. Knead in remaining sugar. Knead until the fondant is smooth, pliable and does not stick to your hands. If fondant is too soft, add more sugar; if too stiff, add water (a drop at a time). Use fondant immediately or store in airtight container in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate or freeze. When ready to use, knead again until soft.
