Hi! I'm having a problem with my marshmallow fondant: it turns really oily/wet. What could be the reason? I'm using vegetable OIL btw, not vegetable SHORTENING when kneading it and rolling. I tried applying cornstarch for the kneading but the fondant starts cracking and tearing after a few kneads and feels kind of gritty. Any way to solve this oiliness and the cracking issue??
Yes, leave out the oil! You can't replace shortening with oil in all cases, they are two different things. So either go back to the shortening, or leave it all out.
I'm not keen on using vegetable shortening for health reasons. I don't plan on using it on anything other than IF I do use it on fondant. Should I just use cornstarch when kneading?
If you just use it on your hands to prevent sticking, and some cornstarch on your surface, that should work. I have The Mat, and that also prevents me from adding a lot of extra stuff to the fondant.
i just wanna say cute cake nutri
The cornstarch dries it out. If anything I would use sifted powdered sugar
