I've only made the marshmallow fondant which is very easy to do and very easy to work with ... I haven't tried one that has to be cooked . .. the marshmallow fondant also tastes so much better than other fondants icon_smile.gif

Check out rolled buttercream, as well....

Fondant Uncooked
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup hot water
1/3 cup corn syrup


1 lb. box confectioners' sugar
1/3 c. light corn syrup
1/3 c. butter, softened
Few drops of mint or almond flavoring (optional)
Few drops of food coloring (if desired)
Combine the softened butter, corn syrup, and confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl. Knead with the hands until well blended. This takes about 5 minutes. If it is still sticky, add more confectioners' sugar until it is easy to shape. This may be wrapped in plastic or waxed paper or kept in a container and store in refrigerator until ready to use. Will keep a long time.


3 1/4 c. powdered sugar (1/4 saved out)
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. whipped cream
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine sugar and butter. Beat well with mixer until smooth. Beat in cream and extract using your hands and 1/4 sugar as needed to make a stiff dough. Put in food color (add a few drops at a time and knead in). Put in refrigerator for 30 minutes after shaping into balls.

I have never done rolled buttercream before. Do you roll and drape just like the MMF? And does it taste as good as the mmf?
