My nightmare fondant has once again made an appearance! I used to make my own fondant but I kept having an occasional problem with the fondant tearing while I was still in the kneading process. I used to think it was just dry so I'd add more shortening, or more glycerin for the stretch, more corn syrup, etc.The problem didn't only arise when I was making dark colors, so that shot my other theory out of the water.
So I switched to Satin Ice and Fondx and haven't had the issue again....until tonight. I am trying to make a very specific sage green to match the birthday girls flowers on her dress. Its not a dark color, so I'm not adding a lot, but I am adding each of three colors a very little at a time and kneading after each addition. Is it possible to over knead fondant?
I am at a loss as to what the problem is and what the solution is. I am so close to having the color done, but the fondant is just falling apart on me while I am kneading it. I am so frustrated!
I would appreciate any thoughts you had to share! Thanks!
