Can anyone shoot me a tried and true fondant recipe? I'm not talking MMF, but a regular fondant. I've tried a few recipes that all taste wonderful but when I roll them out, they either tear or split at the top edge. They simply are not elastic enough. A cake decorator friend of mine who lives overseas says to add cmc powder. I added tylose thinking it was the same, but she says no they are different. I can't find a supplier who sells the stuff. Please help. TIA
There are plenty of suppliers who sell carboxymethyl cellulose but most of them are in the UK.
It is a cellulose that does make it more elastic but it should be equivalent to the american standard of glycering mixed with gelatin.
Have you tried Michelle Foster's fondant recipe on this website? It contains these two ingredients, tastes good for fondant, and is very elastic if kneaded properly.
Yes I have tried Michelle Foster's Fondant, For the first time and I swore I would never make fondant, But now I may never purchase Fondant again, and it is so effective, you should try it, take it from a first timer
Here,s the recipe
That's where I get my CMC.
