I purchased CK dried fondant to make poured icing or poured fondant. Once upon a time there was a recipe for it but I can't find it online now. Does anyone know how to make it. I need it for tomorrow

Try their website. If not there send an email to customer service.

Thanks but it isn't on their website, it just says you can make it but doesn't give clear instructions. I wish I had time but i have to make my cupcakes today. I am just going to use regular fondant because I don't have time to wait for a response. I'll have to email them for future reference.

FAQ #1: I ordered this product. How much water do I mix with it. D. McClendon 21 Forster pky Mt. Vernon,NY 10552
Answer: 1 LB DRY FONDANT 2 TBS MILK OR WHIPING CREAM 6 TBS BUTTER OR MARGARINE SUBSTITUTE WATER FOR MILK

FAQ #2: once made into a cream center, how does it (dry fondant) need to be stored? Do filled candies need to be refridgerated?
Answer: WRAP IN PLASTIC TO KEEP IT FROM DRYING OUT AND STORE IN A COOL PLACE. THE FILLED CANDIES DO NOT NEED REFIRGERATED.

FAQ #3: Can this product be used to make rolled fondant for cakes? And if so, should it be mixed differently than the instructions say?
Answer: Dry fondant is used to make candy centers and icings. The rolled fondant used on cakes is a separate product and comes in ready to roll packages



right off there website hope this helps

I always thought that dry fondant was for candy centers. Poured fondant is something else. And rolled fondant is something else again.

When it says it can make icing it is refering to the poured icing you cover petit fours with. I assumed that is poured fondant. At any rate that is what I was trying to make. I played around with it and was able to get it the right consistancy. Thanks for the info. Here is a link to the cupcakes I made with it. I need practice but I like the over all look.
