Hi everyone
Can anyone please confirm if fondant icing (rolled icing/sugarpaste) is gluten-free? I think it is, but just wondered if anyone out there knew for certain.
Apparently it sometimes doesn't say on products as it's not in the list of ingredients but is in the making of the product, so does anyone know?

The post from auzzie in this thread was an eye opener for me...the answer is not always an easy yes or no and should probably warrant more research than asking the question here.

3. not gluten-free

The homemade rolled fondant recipe is gluten-free as long as the powdered or confectioner's sugar is sucrose with cornstarch or tapioca starch as the anti-caking agent.

What ever brand you select, you must ask the manufacturer direct what's in his product. If you make it yourself, the onus is on you to know what is what ..

I would love your recipes for both the fondant and icing. I have just started a business and many of my clients are gluten free. Thanks a bunch, in advance.
