I am making some fondant tonight but do not have powdered milk on hand (which is what the recipe lists...btw recipe is called faux fondandt). Am I able to use regular milk? I have 2% on hand.

Thanks for the help!

No, you have to remember there is a big difference between a wet product and a dry product. I would just make a Marshmellow Fondant, I don't know what the Faux fondant recipe calls for. But the MMF is just Marshmellows, sugar, and flavoring basically.

I don't know your exact recipe. Most "faux" fondants are crusting buttercreams or rolled buttercream, not stretchy, ready-to-roll fondant.

If you use 2% milk, you should just cut down your other liquid(s) by that amount, so if the recipe calls for 1c. of water and 4 tbsp. of powdered milk, I'd just use 1 cup of milk.
