ok, i am soooo frustrated....I have spent a fortune trying to make this work :(
i was using this recipe to make fondant http://decoratedcupcakeideas.com/rolled-fondant-recipe-with-video-instructions/
but always crumbly....a little better if i put say 3 # of sugar, and then rolled immediatley.
so after another particularly lousy batch last night i send dh to grocery for more supplies. I checked here and found MFF (michele fosters fondant recipe) loved idea. So i decided to follow directions to a 'T' and covered and left over night--now it looked and kneaded great last night, but this morning it was terrible!!! All crumbly-breaking into bits, finally three in microwave for a few seconds. and it held together and rolled, but when i put it on cake, corners cracked, no drape, and quickly very stiff.
i have had great success with marshmallow fondant==but my kids have allergies, and we cannot use the marshmallows! soooo... any help please?!
