Does anybody know if there's anywhere in the UK I can order some liquid fondant from?
I'm making panda cake pops and I figured the best way to get a good white coating would be to use fondant but covering a cake pop with rolled fondant seems like it'd be far too fiddly to do well?

Or if anybody has any other suggestions that'd be great!

You can spend $$$ for pouring fondant or you can make your own from powdered sugar, corn syrup/glucose and water.

The only secret to using both is to warm to 40C over a hot water bath, and dip at that temperature. The finish is identical for both kinds.

Great, I'll definitely give that a go. Thanks!

When you make your own pouring fondant, add only 3/4 of the water and heat until the mixture is at 40C. Then add water dropwise to make the desired consistency.

Is there a reason you don't want to use chocolate coating? That's what most cake pop makers use.

I normally use a chocolate coating when making cake pops, but I want to get it as white as possible and I don't think I could achieve that with chocolate.

You can buy merkens super white candy coating from the cake decorating company in the UK, they are bright white.

Or you can use white powder colours to make white chocolate whiter.
