I would like to try this recipe but I want to half it. It says 3 packages of gelatin or 6 tsp. I measured my packets and 3 packages was 3 tsp. My normal fondant calls for 1/4 cup of water and 2 packages. So if I'm going to half Michelles recipe it seems I would need 1 1/2 packages. I'm confused. Am i making any sense? Has anyone made half a recipe of this fondant and can tell me how much gelatin I need. Thanks

Yes, you need 1 1/2 packs. I only make a half recipe at a time.

Thanks akgirl10...I know this sounds dumb, but how many tsps are in 1 packet? Do you know why the recipe reads 3 packages is 6 tsps?

Are you using the standard knox gelatin packets? I think those are three teaspoons each. Maybe different brands have different amounts?

Yes, I am using Knox. This is kind a silly...I'm just sitting her totally immersed in CC I think I should get up and go open a packet and see icon_lol.gif I guess I was just thrown off by the recipe and needed some CC love to reassure me i'm ok thumbs_up.gif
Thanks for responding so quickly. Do you like MF fondant? Have you tried others?

I've tried marshmallow once, it was ok, very stretchy. I really like MF's fondant, I go between that and satin ice, which is just a tad softer.

Okay i just measured 1 package and its 1 1/2 tsp. My Knox is 4 to a pack. So I put in 1 packet plus about 3/4 tsp.
