I was making a batch of this fondant last night and ran out of sugar (due to making several bad batches of mmf). Do you think i will be able to add in the rest of the sugar today. it should only be another 2 - 2-1/2 cups i have to add in

did you figure this one out? icon_confused.gif Did it work?

I've had trouble getting homemade fondant the correct consistancy. I'm now loyal to Satin Ice... icon_rolleyes.gif

If the fondant is still very soft then you will be able to add more powdered sugar to it. It will take some effort, so be prepared for a good workout. It will probably be easier to work in small batches and then knead all of them together to get it to the right consistency.

I hope this reply isn't too late.

Thanks for the replies (i didnt get any notices)

Actually i just put it in a greased bowl and covered it overnight.

The next day it was still sticky and i was able to add about another 3-4 cups to it.

It was still a little soft, i didnt want to overdo it, but i think it will be ok.

Will let you know how it turns out when I go to put in on the cake this week.

I just made a batch of Michelle's fondant this afternoon for the first time. It was pretty simple to make. It still seemed a little soft, but I didn't want to go too far the other way and have it get hard. I will check it tomorrow after it has rested. I tasted it and liked it alot. I didn't seem as chewy as Satin Ice.
