I followed the recipe exactly, but after rolling it, the dough became soft, sticky and kept breaking. It also became very greasy. It doesn't taste like buttercream, just like a very sweet paste. I'm sure kids wouldn't mind it, but I personally don't care for the taste. This is my first experience with fondant, and while I'm sure it tastes 100% better than a store bought fondant, it doesn't compete with a traditional frosting. If I ever made it again, I would try reducing the amount of corn syrup and shortening by half. It's probably a good base recipe for tweaking, but didn't work for me and the other lone reviewer who had a not so great experience.
