This is a rolled buttercream that taste better than fondant and looks great on cakes. I use it on all of my cakes.
If you do not use exact ingredients the rolled butter ream will not come out great like cracking and etc. Also does great with coloring.


Amount Ingredient
1Cup Shortening
1Cup Light Corn Syrup
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp. Clear Vanilla or Almond extract
2 Lbs. 10x Confectioners Sugar


Step1: Mix light corn syrup with shortening until we’ll mixed.
Step2: Add salt and vanilla or almond extract and mix.
Step3: Sift in confectioners sugar until you get desired dough like texture
that is not sticky. This recipe does very well when adding coloring.

When I found this recipe it was labeled wrong. It is not a fondant. So I reposted with the correct name. It taste better than fondant and looks like it. But as I said it is not. Hope you enjoy :)
