Where do you buy unflavored gelatin?
What is a double burner?
here's the recipe http://cakecentral.com/recipes/7446/michele-fosters-fondant
on step 6 do i have to use something like a kitchenaid mixer to mix it ?
has anyone else made a fondant recipe mixing it by hand?
Never made that particular recipe but I mix all my fondant by hand.
Unflavored gelatin is in the same isle as regular jello. Look on the top shelf.
do you mean burner or boiler?
If she used a mixer it probably works best that way, but I have made it by hand.
I don't see why you couldn't make it by hand as long as you are willing to put in the elbow grease.
You don't want to use a hand mixer to mix fondant btw.
Unflavored gelatin is in the same isle as the flavored gelatin. KNOX is a name brand that is unflavored gelatin, but some stores have a store brand too.
I am guessing it is just the measuring bowl.
The pyrex measuring cup (or whatever you use for the "top" of your double boiler) cannot touch the water that is in the pan that is the "bottom" of your double boiler.
The sauce pan needs to be able to hold about an inch of water and hold the measuring cup out of it. So the size of the sauce pan is dependent on the size of the measuring cup, but both are pretty flexible. Her pyrex looks to be a 1 quart one.
It lookes like deMuralist answered most of the questions about the double broiler. I use the pyrex measuring cup over the sauce pan. The measuring cup does not touch the water in the pan. I use a 1 qt. measuring cup and a 1 qt. sauce pan. You can use any glass bowl(or measuring cup) and sauce pan that fit together to make the double broiler.
The recipe makes approx. 3 lbs of fondant.
I have nevery had any problems with adding the pudding mix to my wasc. I've even used it for carving with no problems.
Since I moved I haven't been able to find Pillsbury mixes in the grocery stores. I'm a little worried. Any of you from Massachusetts know if the stores carry those?
I think that answered all the questions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any more. I'll try to answer them if I can.
Yeah! Definitely will try Pillsbury with the next WASC. Thanks tastyart!
you don't need a double boiler for MFF. just nuke it in the microwave, no prob!
I'm always afraid of over cooking it in the microwave. I did that with chocolate once. What a mess! That's why I stick with the double broiler.
what does wasc and mmf mean?
tastyart- what part of ma did you move to? we may be neighbors!
I'm up north of Boston. Where are you dreamcakesmom?
35-40 minutes south of Boston. I've been looking for people to maybe do a cake club to exchange ideas, etc. When you are sttled we should plan something.
I found pillsbury cake mix this evening at Shaws. It was over $2!!!!! I've never paid that much for a cake mix. Is that normal here?
The cake club sounds interesting, dreamcakesmom. Maybe we can work something out.
