  • Pour water into a microwave safe bowl.

  • Pour your powdered sugar into a large bowl, making a well in the center.
  • Add liquid mixture to powdered sugar.
  • Using a greased wooden spoon carefully fold powdered sugar.
  • Turn out fondant on to a greased surface and knead like bread dough.
  • If fondant is dry add more shortening.
  • If fondant is too sticky add more powdered sugar 1 tbsp at a time.

  • Let sit for 24 hours; if you don't it will be too soft and sticky.
