That is a great question. I think you are going to have to experiment to see the limits of how much glycerin to use to achieve the consistency you want. Please let me know what ends up working.

Thanks, Zoë

I’m just discovering your website and becoming an instant fan! I’m a rookie cake decorator who loves to create and play in the kitchen. I’m planning to make a mocha cake for an upcoming birthday and found your site when googling mocha buttercream (the italian meringue version which looks delicious) I’m not sure yet if I’ll do a buttercream covered with fondant or just do a buttercream finish with piping decorations. I have 2 questions for you: 1) how well does your mocha buttercream hold up under fondant? 2) is the mocha butter cream a good consistency for piping? 3) would you add instant coffee in the water for this fondant to pair it with a mocha cake? Thank you!

I’ve tried so many rolled fondant made from scratch recipes and they never seem to work out, it turns all cookie dough

I am giving this recipe a try as I need fondant for an upcoming cake, just a question, am I able to use this to cover a 12″ cake?

Sorry for the trouble.

Are you using this recipe or another? If you used this one, are you using any substitutes in the ingredients?

If you have followed this recipe exactly and it is still coming out too dry, you can try adding a bit more corn syrup and/or try putting the fondant in the microwave for just a few seconds, which will soften it slightly. If you microwave the fondant, do it in 10 second intervals.

Thanks, Zoë
