It is delicious but it is soooo soft that it is very difficult to work with. Maybe it is the heat and humidity of South Florida?
what about adding some tylose to firm it up a bit?
Can u make this fondant a few days ahead and store it in the refrigerator?
Very yummy! I had a hard time working with it too, but found it was fairly easy to patch with "shortening fingers". :)
does it last outside a fridge? for how long?
I first have to say, this has got to be one of the best tasting fondant style icings I have ever tasted. I did have quite a time manipulating it and placing it onto my 10 inch cake because it kept tearing, so I kept adding a mix of cornstarch and powdered sugar to get it to the right consistency. I made it for a 4th of July/Happy Birthday and the temps were awfully high and humid so I am certain that had something to do with it. I really didn't give it much time to harden since I was running extremely late so I just molded it and smoothed it onto the cake, decorated and left to the party. A lot of the times when I go to weddings or partys people leave the fondant icing on the plates and eat the rest. In my case, EVERYTHING was gone. Not a single bit was left of this cake. This recipe will definitly be my goto for fondont. Thanks!
Where can I view the photos? I just signed up today, so I'm VERY new to this :-)
i have been looking / wanting to try a cream cheese fondant recipe for quite some time now and i heard it was impossible.. i made a carrot cake for my moms 50th birthday as it is her favorite cake. i didn't want to put the usual cream cheese icing on it, i wanted it to look pretty :) so, i tried this recipe and it was awesome!! As stated before it was quite difficult to work with as it rips easily but can be "patched". i found it needed the full 1/2 cup of cornstarch and extra icing sugar. I do have to say it was the best tasting fondant that i (and my family) have ever tasted!! i would suggest testing this fondant before using it for a function or client. i cant wait to practice with it and i will also use it for most of my cakes from now on. thanks for the great recipe!!
I THINK I'M GOING TO MIX IT WITH DUFF GOLDMAN'S BUTTER CREAM FONDANT TO MAKE IT MORE PLIABLE! OR MAYBE EVEN MARZIPAN WILL LET EVERYONE KNOW HOW IT WORKS OUT BECAUSE I HAVE A CAKE I'M DOING THAT WILL NEED CREAM CHEESE FLAVOR
I love this recipe. It is my go to recipe for fondant. I prefer cream cheese frosting, so when I found this recipe for fondant.... I was so excited! This is aweseome and very forgiving. :)
How does one store this type once it is on the cake? People usually say no fridge with fondant but always fridge with creamcheese. O.o So which one with this? lol
sorry but this fondant is not good to work with at all!
