The result is great, I encourage you to try it and decide for yourself. Let’s go for the recipe.

How to make fondant: easy recipe


  • 90 ml of water
  • 90 g of glucose
  • 1 tablespoonful of 15 g of glycerin
  • 1 tablespoonful of vegetable fat (crisco)
  • 1, 5 kg of icing sugar
  • 12 gr of neutral gelatin


  1. Hydrate the gelatin in the water and while sifting the icing sugar very well. It is a very important step.

  2. Heat the gelatin in the microwave or in a double boiler to dissolve it.

  3. Add the glucose, glycerin, and vegetable fat and reheat to dissolve. Add an essence now, if you want.

  4. Little by little, add the icing sugar and stir until it is integrated. Repeat the process until you can’t move it any more with the spatula.

  5. Sprinkle icing sugar on the table and pour the mixture. Begin to knead until no more sugar is allowed and does not stick to your hands.

  6. Store in transparent film and in an airtight container.

You can keep it up to 3 weeks out of the fridge. And you can dye it if you wish.
