Wow, fondant making. That is impressive. You make it sound so very easy. That cake is adorable! I have never eaten fondant. Perhaps I should give it a whirl. Is that vegetable glycerin?

The colors of the cake are beautiful! Do you have any idea of a good substitute for the corn syrup? Unfortunately, I am also alergic to corn products.Thanks!

You can use glucose instead of corn syrup. It looks, feels and tastes just like it. And can be substituted for corn syrup. I use half of both.

Im in the middle of making this recipe, just added liquid to the icing sugar and mixing it and its way too runny. I added all the icing sugar and mixed it and its still way too runny, looks like runny icing. I added another cup of icing sugar and it thickened a bit more. Do I keep on adding icing sugar till its thick??? HELP! I added 2 lbs anitionally, dont know where I messed up.

Rachel, are you using a stand mixer? Let it mix for a while, it thickens up as it mixes. That amount of sugar should work, together with the syrup and gelatin mixture. I’d keep adding it slowly, with the mixer doing the work, until you have a more play dough like consistency.

I’m going to try this recipe tomorrow, it looks manageable. What size of cake will this recipe cover? Did you have lots left over after making that Lightning cake? I need to make a cake that’s bigger than that and I’m wondering if I need to double the recipe. Thanks

How long will the fondant stay good for in the fridge once its mixed up?
