without glycerine, you could try rolled buttercream.

MBalaska I did rolled buttercream and it was a disaster.  It rolled fine but when I tried to lift it it just broke into pieces and just did not stay together.  It was a mess.  I decided to make decorations with it and they were shiny and very slimmy.Fondant covered and decorations

I made the dots for the outside of the cake.

What fondant are you currently using on your cakes in your gallery, & Why not continue to use the fondant that you have been using?

 

I agree with you about rolled buttercream.  That's what I thought when I first made it and tried it 15 years ago.    But If it's fondant, it will have glycerine in it.  Modeling Chocolate may be an alternative.

 

Here's a good thread about making fondant, that you may find useful information.

I make Marshmallow Fondant and I am very happy with it,  Right now it takes me no time to put it together and I have found that the trick to not having a big mess is Crisco everything.  The bowl where the marshmallow goes in and the spatula to stir it and my "clean" hands when kneading.

Something has to make sugar flexible, what would you ideally like?
