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 I guess I was just thrown off by the recipe and needed some CC love to reassure me i'm ok
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.
