This works pretty well. I found that by waiting for the fondant to cool down a bit before pouring help with consistency.

This fondant was not what I was expecting. Maybe I didn't get it to the right temp, but it was thick, and didn't pour. It also ended up crystalizing very quickly, and I had to throw the batch aw...

I use this recipe for petit fours and it works really well to coat the sides. The first time I made it I was careful with the temperature but now I just stir it until it gets to be the right con...

I found this to be a great recipe for covering a cake maybe, but for petit fours, I had to add some milk to it to thin it out a bit. I didn't find it thin enough to pour over petit fours.

the chocolate doesn't ever melt so that it's uniformly brown, but rather white with brown speckles. Tastes fine, but I won't use this again.
