this is an incredibly simple recipe with great texture.
i just microwaved the gelatin and water for 20 seconds and that worked well.
putting the icing sugar in the bowl first and adding the other ingredients after, like other reviews suggested was good because you didnt have you worry about the corn syrup or anything sticking to the bottom of the bowl.
a few tweaks i would suggest is first, that although it doesnt taste bad, its not as tasty as the marshmallow fondant, so maybe next time i will add a teaspoon or two of clear vanilla extract.
second, you need to use the dough hook for the stand mixer, any other beater would be too big and will burn out the motor and not mix it properly.
also, you dont need to mix it for 15 minutes. let the stand mixer mix it for about 5 or so minutes just to let the ingredients combine and start to hold together, then take it out and finish it up by kneading it on a surface dusted with cornstarch. you dont need to knead it for long, maybe 2 minutes?
and i would skip the refridgeration if you are using it right away, it holds its shape extremely well and doesnt get too sticky.
