It was my first try at making fondant, and even though I don't own a KitchenAid mixer, I made it anyway. I just had to roll up my sleeves and knead away, and it was tough and left me with aching hands and forearms - but so worth it! I did use food coloring and had to knead it in after the initial mixing, but next time I make it (and if I know I need a lot of one color), I will add in the food color at the beginning with the water and gelatin on the stove. Also, when I made it, I didn't use cornstarch at all. I sprayed my hands down with Pam and the table as well where I kneaded the fondant. Next time I make it, I don't think I'll refrigerate it either 'cause it actually made more work for my poor hands & seemed to dry it out more, too. For my first time, I think it went well, considering my lack of kitchen appliances, and I look forward to the next time I get to play with fondant. :)
