What kind have you used? Home made recipes taste better, IMO, than the kind bought from the store (i.e. wilton).

Thank You!

Here is the link to the recipe: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-3663-Michele-Fosters-Delicious-Fondant.html

When making this, be sure to let the hot liquid cool to lukewarm. Otherwise it will take a LOT more powdered sugar to get it to be firm and then the next day it will be a rock.

If it happens to be a little "gummy" the next day, knead in some extra powdered sugar. It should be a lot like a stiff bread dough when it's just right. If, however, it's too stiff, knead in small amounts of glycerin until it is softer.

The great thing about this fondant is that it is so easy to flavor and color in the way you like. It also is much less expensive and makes about 3 1/2 to 4 lbs. of fondant. It can be frozen, but will keep at room temperature for at least a month if properly wrapped. Even though it has dairy products in it, the cooking and sugar preserves the fondant. If dairy free is needed, then replace the milk and butter with water and shortening. It's SO easy.

Marshmallow Fondant is good too. And it is easy as well. You can find that in the recipe section too.

I swear by MMF and will never use anything else. It's cheap, easy, and tastes great. You can get basically any flavoring for it, but butavan is my personal favorite.
