  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix corn syrup, vegetable shortening, and salt in a large bowl. Beat in clear vanilla extract and cornstarch. Slowly stir in confectioners' sugar, about 1 cup at a time, mixing in the sugar thoroughly each time before adding the next cup. Fondant will become increasingly stiff; if too sticky, add more cornstarch and confectioners' sugar to make an easily-workable dough.
  2. Turn fondant onto a work surface generously dusted with cornstarch; roll to desired thickness.


  • Cook's Note:

Don't use cornstarch. Roll f.dough in between to wax papers to not stick. Using too much conf.sugar will cause cracking.

This recipe was easy to make but it was not easy for me to work with. It cracked and I could not get it on to my cake. I tried everything to get it to do what i needed it to but to no avail.

No matter how much cornstarch I used it fell apart, and cracked. It was good for in a pinch, but my cake looks like my two year old did it. At least my cake is covered.
