Has anyone ever made this? I didn't see a recipe for it here in our recipe vault. I copied the article, this is not me talking below.
1 cup of shortening or butter
1 cup of clear corn syrup
½ tsp fine salt
1 tsp clear vanilla extract
½ tsp any flavoring
2lbs of powdered sugar
Mix shortening, syrup and flavorings together. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time.
If you want to make a chocolate rolled butter cream fondant just add ½ cup of cocoa to sugar before mixing.
My favorite tasting fondant would be the regular rolled fondant just because it has a more buttery flavor because I use butter flavored shortening and butter flavoring.
The buttercream fondant is shinier and is used mostly for wedding cakes. The Marshmallow is easier to make.
(Same) Rolled buttercream fondant recipe w/reviews:
Wow...the reviews swung completely both ways....I love it..and I hate it...I think I'll just stick with my MMF. Thanks Jan! You're alwyas such a wealth of knowledge here.
You're most welcome, ddaigle.

Actually, that doesn't surprise me anymore....
Some of the threads on CC have become very heated on similar topics.
If I find a frosting recipe that's interesting, I just make up 1/2 or even 1/4 of the recipe for testing purposes.... and then I decide if I like it. But if everyone pans the recipe, I usually keep looking.
I just use LoRann butter flavored candy oil in my MMF. I like the taste better than Fondarific's buttercream flavor:
I tried it! It tastes fabulous, but falls apart REALLY easy. The cake I did with this stuff was the most frustrating cake I've ever done! But boy did it taste good!
ddaigle, rolled buttercream can be greasy and is harder to work with than fondant in many cases. It tends to want to slip. However, many love the flavor of RBC over fondant. I once saw a noted cake designer combine the two and tried that myself. It worked well and had good flavor. Just another thought to add to the mix ('scuse the pun.)
Well, I don't need any more challenges. I already do almost every cake 2 times because of my analness. I like the taste of MMF....I just want to continue to spike up the flavor until I REALLY get it right. I haven't been able to find the LoRann locally.....is that something I will need to order? Deb
Do you have a Hobby Lobby in your area? They have the LoRann in their cake aisle on the opposite side with candy molds, etc. I'm not sure; however, if they have the butter flavor (I know they have butter-rum, but that is really strong.) If not, you might have to order the flavoring online. Not much help, sorry.
I do have a HL. I didn't to look there. I'll check it out. Thanks!
I buy mine at CountryKitchenSA.com
MacsMom...I just returned from my local party store and they had it....I never looked in the candy section. Thanks!!!
I made rolled buttercream once. I'd like to try it one more time. It was a little sweet, but I think I lost count w/ my cups of sugar.
I used it on NFSC and I was pleased w/ the result. (factoring in my inability to count cups of sugar) I'm not sure how it would have held up on a cake. It's not going to replace my love for MMF... but I would like to give it another go, just for something different.
If I ever do try it..it will be to cover cookies or something small. I'm not going to fight it to cover a cake if it has the tendency to tear.
