I made a couple adjustments, one because of ingredients I didn't have, and another because I had read other reviews and was trying to think about how to overcome some shortfalls of the recipe as written. First, I used honey in place of the corn syrup, because of not having the latter. It's a well-established substitution, so I doubt anything fundamental changed about the outcome because of it. Second, after I added the amount of confectioner's sugar called for, I began to add flour until the desired consistency of the dough was achieved. I think it absorbed some of the greasiness better than continuing to use sugar. True, it was still a bit greasy, but plenty workable. This was my first time using fondant or anything like it, so I won't pin down any flaw in my cake decor on the recipe, rather on my inexperience. tl;dr recipe worked just fine, but isn't superb.
