omg! I'm sooo excited! our local supply shop got in CK fondant mix and I am mixing a batch for the first time! It was sooo easy! Now I have some questions icon_lol.gif

It says to have the butter and some milk in there...did that and it seems very moist. Do I need to only let this sit for a couple hours or over night?

also, I want to mix a batch right away that is using chocolate...do I still add in the butter or just the chocolate?

any help, advice, or tips on using this product is greatly appreciated! I'm just glad I don't have to use Wilton fondant anymore!

It sounds like candy fondant, not rolled fondant. Make some chocolate-covered buttercreams and send them to me.

Yes, there's a difference. Chocolate-covered buttercreams are candy.

I checked the CK website, and the dry fondant is, indeed, a candy filling.

No, it's candy filling. It will stay soft.

I'm not understanding...this fondant seems to have hardened up already as if it is Wilton Fondant or if I had made MMF. why do you guys keeps saying it's candy fondant...and WHAT type of candies can I make?

yup. it's a candy filling. not fondant fondant. i, too, got excited when i saw it in the store, but i didn't know a lot about it so i went home and googled it. glad i did! i'm not sure how to use it exactly, all i know is, it's not the kind of fondant you cover a cake with! sorry!!
