How to Make Fondant

We'll cover the basics AND some lesser-known tips for how to make fondant. Our basic fondant recipe creates a bright white, malleable, edible material that can be sculpted, molded, cut, colored, and shaped into a huge array of figures, characters, flowers, and any extra accessory for your gingerbread house.

Rolled Fondant is also frequently used to cover cakes, such as wedding cakes, leaving a perfectly smooth, satiny surface. Whatever your plan for using it, follow these steps to learn how to make fondant like a pro.
