Hi, I have tried to make poured fondant with duff goldman brand but still not able to make good fondant icing. If anyone can help me how long does it take for the icing to get dry once it is poured on a cupcake or petit four? Mine is still sticky after 1 hour. I used simple syrup with dry fondant and then added a little confectioners sugar to thicken it. Where did I go wrong? Is it not drying bcoz I added sugar or what? I relly want to do it icon_sad.gif

I didn't see a pourable fondant mix among Duff's offerings:

So you added simple syrup to Duff's premade fondant to make a pourable fondant, and then added confectioners sugar to thicken it?

Here are some poured fondant recipes.

Loved the video explaining hot to make the petit fours, but don't know what's easier to do since most recipes require a thermometer..
Can I simply add water or simple syrup to my fondant over low heat and use it as poured fondat??

Thanks
