In Toba Garrett's fondant, one of the ingredients is glycerin, and it is optional. What does it do the fondant? Is it a good idea to use it, or is it not necessary?

I think it's a softener and moisturizer. I use it in my fondant (not Toba Garrett's). Depending on what else is in the recipe, I think the fondant might be too dry without it.

You can buy it in a pharmacy.
