Hello!! I have made fondant a couple of times and both times it seemed to crack and not stay nice and smooth........what can I do to fix this?? The last recipe I used was Micheal Fosters fondant recipe. Am I adding to much sugar?? Please help me figure out what to do to make perfect fondant!
It's a fine line between just right and too dry.
Try adding a bit of shortening and/or cut down on the amount of sugar. Go slowly. Don't take take out say like 2 cups and expect it to be right; start w/leaving out 1/4 c. When you roll it out are you using p.s. on the surface or shortening? Which ever you are using, try the other:) When using shortening, put just a small dab on and rub it round well, then take a paper towel and lightly rub over it so you don't have too muich on the surface.
Personally I prefer to use Wilton, adding flavoring to it for a better taste. I only made fondant once or twice and found it to be much to much work for me :)
Always wanted to make my own fondant. but after the same disasters you have had i gave up. so ill try this! thanks:)
AI make marshmallow fondant and it has a good taste and it is easy
AThank you, I will try and play around, I just want it to be nice and smooth and not rolling apart......maybe next time it will work out for me.
