Frosting a cake with fondant gives it a smooth, elegant, professional appearance. It looks tough to master, but fondant isn’t actually difficult to make. In this video, we’ll show you how to make fondant in just four easy steps. You’ll learn how to make the gelatin base in a double boiler. Then you’ll combine the gelatin mixture with confectioner’s sugar. We’ll show you how to knead the fondant; you’ll see the consistency you’re aiming for—a smooth, pliable consistency that doesn’t stick to your hands. You’ll learn how to correct for a fondant that’s too stiff or too soft. Once you’ve rolled out the fondant, top a cake with it or store it for later. We’ll show you how!

Do a web search for butter cream fondant. I haven't made it myself but the reviews say it tates better than this kind. I found a video much like this one and they give the amounts of ingredients too.

Oh and I would love if the measurements were included so I don't have to go looking for the recipe as well and I can work from the video.
