Hi all!

Just wondering if I can take regular fondant, and melt it somehow to make poured fondant to use on cupcakes? Any advice, you pro's? icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I am definitely not a pro, but I think that might be a little difficult. Why do you want to melt it for cupcakes, I would just roll it out and cut out a round and apply to the top, you can emboss it or decorate it, they are really cute! JMO

this is how I make my poured fondant all the time.

add a little water to some rolled fondant in a microwave safe bowl.

microwave for little bits of time.

stir until smooth and runny. I can't tell you how much water and fondant but just make it runny.

be careful, this is hot sugar you're playing with.

if it starts to harden in the bowl just pop it back in the microwave.

thanks! I heard it could be done. I will definately try that!

As for the roll, cut and place idea, I like that look, but the poured fondant also offers a completely different look that I liked as well. I always wanted to try it, see how it worked out.

Do the colors dry opaque?

If you are doing dark cake with a light fondant I would definately wait for the first dip to dry and then do a second coat. It doesnt cover like placing a pice of rolled fondant on them would, it's more like a pastel glaze effect. does that even make sense?

on that note... will you be dipping the cupacakes into the poured fondant? or do you have a different method?

I have only used light colors so let me know how it goes if you use a dark fondant.
