I'm trying to get a feel for fondant ... am reviewing different recipes. Please, what do glucose and glycerin do for fondant? What roles do they play as ingredients?
Keep it plyable
If you're getting ready to try making your own fondant, save yourself the time and go right for Michele Foster's Fondant (MFF). So many people on CC recommended this one I had to try it. Boy do I wish I tried it first before wasting my time on others! By far the easiest to work with, and MUCH easier to work with than marshmallow fondant (MMF).
sold! i'll try MFF soon
in your opinion, is MFF easier to work with than, say, Satin Ice?

I find Satin Ice super easy to work with. To me MFF is just as easy to work with, but it costs a fraction of the price for me to make it. And it does taste great too.
Oh, and one more tip. If you do decide to make your own fondant, you can buy glycerine in large bottles from the health food store MUCH cheaper than buying the little Wilton bottles from Michaels or Joann.
I so agree MFF is the best I've tried. Wouldn't use anything else.
I love JenniferMI's white chocolate fondant and I also like Satin Ice (use only the colored ones).
Did marshmallow fondant a few times and I just don't like the hassle as I am a hobby baker and work full time and it is just not convenient for me. I also thought it stretched too much.
Definitely Michele Foster's - it is wonderful to work with.
