What you'll need to make fondant:
How to make fondant:
Combine gelatin and cold water and then let it stand a few minutes until it thickens.
Place the gelatin and water mixture in the top of double boiler. Heat and stir until dissolved, then add glucose and mix. Stir in vegetable shortening. Just before it is completely melted remove mixture from heat.
Add glycerin, plus any flavoring and any coloring. Cool until lukewarm.
Pour confectioners' sugar into a large bowl and make a well in the center. Pour the gelatin mixture into the well, and stir with the spoon until no longer sticky. Knead by hand or with a mixer. Knead until smooth and no longer sticky.
Store up to a week in an airtight container at room temperature (ok to refrigerate if storing longer.) When ready to use, knead it again to make it soft. Refrigerated dough should return to room temperature before kneading.
Roll out and use! If fondant is too soft, you can add sugar. If fondant is too dry, add more vegetable shortening.
Show us your great cake and tell us how you did it!
