Most fondants taste after some googling I found this wonderful
Vanilla fondant recipe with an amazing taste. It is also the easiest Fondant
I have made so far with a beautiful look to it as we’ll.


Amount Ingredient
1 Cup Shortening (Crisco in can)
1 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1 Tablespoon Clear Vanilla Extract
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Lbs 10x Confectioners Sugar


Step 1: Mix together shortening and light corn syrup until completely mixed.
Step 2: Add salt and clear vanilla extract and mix.
Step 3: Sift in confectioners sugar until the texture is dough like.
*TIPS: Apply fondant on cake or store in air tight container to re-use fondant. Also keep room temperature cool..A warm room can result in condensation on the cake.

You posted the same recipe as "Rolled Buttercream"--which it is.


A true rolled fondant needs something that creates stretch, like gelatin (as in marshmallows), and retains moisture, like glycerin. This recipe has neither.

I'll give it a try Jess, cause, I agree, most fondants do taste crappy. Thanks for sharing...

Like I said it was something googled...meaning this is not mine I found it. If it is labeled wrong then so be it. But it tastes better than fondant and acts as fondant.

This recipe is also on and is actually called rolled buttercream fondant. The video how to do it is on there and YouTube as well.
