This was my first time making fondant, and I am very pleased with the results. After reading many reviews for this recipe, I used a little over 1/2 c of non-hydrogenated vegetable shortening, and made sure the corn syrup and shortening were well creamed before adding the powdered sugar. I found the mix easy to roll out between 2 pieces of waxed paper with my marble rolling pin. I rolled it to 1/8 inch, and could have gone thinner. It was easy to stretch for shaping. The fondant did not crack. I colored some of the mix, and had no problems getting the shades I needed. The fondant had a very mild sheen, quite pretty, and not shiny or greasy appearing. I will use this recipe again!
