Has anyone ever made this? I didn't see a recipe for it here in our recipe vault. I copied and pasted the receipe from the submitter----this is not me talking below.

Buttercream Fondant

1 cup of shortening or butter
1 cup of clear corn syrup
½ tsp fine salt
1 tsp clear vanilla extract
½ tsp any flavoring
2lbs of powdered sugar

Mix shortening, syrup and flavorings together. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time.

If you want to make a chocolate rolled butter cream fondant just add ½ cup of cocoa to sugar before mixing.

My favorite tasting fondant would be the regular rolled fondant just because it has a more buttery flavor because I use butter flavored shortening and butter flavoring.

The buttercream fondant is shinier and is used mostly for wedding cakes. The Marshmallow is easier to make.

That's the rolled buttercream recipe. Some people use it becasue they say it tastes better than fondant. I personally think it's nasty, just a crisco buttercream with no butter in it. You can roll it out, though, so if you truly hate fondant you can use it and try to convince yourself that it tastes good icon_smile.gif
