Hi, you have to knead the fondant with a little bit of shortening. Also I would highly recommend Sugarshack's "Flawless Fondan" dvd.
thank you very much for the suggestions bashini ,im gonna try the shortening tip and was looking for sugarshack's video and i think its very interesting and complete so i gonna buy as soon as posible. sorry was so late to reply you but i was pretty sick on last month but im on my road again
You are welcome and hope you are feeling much better now.
