I'm making my stepson's bday cake at the end of the month and am going to attempt to use fondant, so I wanted to try to work with it first before I started his cake. I thought I would try this recipe as it had pretty good reviews. I don't know if I did something wrong but this just didn't work for me. It tasted pretty good, but it didn't seem to matter what I did, I could not work with it without it cracking and tearing. I tried adding a little water, more shortening, rolling out on corn starch, icing sugar, shortening.... I ended up running out and buying fondant which was WAY easier to work with. I was able to use this fondant for smaller cut out pieces, but there was no way it was going to work to cover a cake.
Maybe someday I will try making fondant again, but in the meantime I think I'll stick to buying it. Most people I've seen don't eat it anyway, even the homemade stuff (which is really sweet), so I think for now I'll save the frustration and buy it.
