HOMEMADE FONDANT (classic method)

Hi all🙋🏻,


Made much logs of homemade fondant with marshmallows.. This is classic and old method to roll fondant at home.

This  recipe will yield 500-600 gms of fondant.



1/2 tbsp gelatine 

1/8 cup water*

1/4 cup glucose*

1/2 tbsp glycerine

1 tbsp butter.. I have used salted one

4 cups icing sugar

1/4 tsp almond extract

1/4 tsp lemon extract

* you can use 1/4 cup of corn syrup instead of liquid glucose but then take 1.5 tbsp of water.


Take powdered sugar in a big bowl or bowl of a stand mixer. Make a well in the middle. Best if you sieve your sugar twice which I did.

Take water in a small bowl. Add gelatine and leave it aside without touching for 5 minutes until the gelatine blooms or gets swollen.

Now either you microwave the gelatine for 10-12 seconds until it dissolves or put the bowl over simmering water.

As soon as it dissolves, add butter. Add glucose and glycerin. Add estracts. Here you can add colour of your choice.

Add the mixture into sugar bowl and mix well with a spatula.

Either you knead with your hands as we do for flour or can use stand mixer using kneading or hook blade. But final smoothness will be done only by your hand.

As it gets smooth, wrap it up in cling film and refrigerate for 24 hrs.

Use when required, and knead well too before using.
