how to make fondant icing

Like most things in life, practice gets perfection, but to make fondant is not too complicated, and given the upgrade it gives to the cake, I would sure give it a try. =)
for those who do not know what is fondant, scroll n see the products n effects of it!

they arent mine btw.. XD
amazing rite??

btw, these are the ingredients required to make the fondant recipe:
63ml water
1 tbsp (table spoon) gelatin (*halal)
125ml glucose syrup
1 1/2 tbsp glycerin
2 tbsp vegetable shortening
1 kg icing sugar

ok so lets get started!
kita ayaq icing sugar dulu naa...=D

At the same time, prepare the double-boiler OR any heat resistant containers for the cooking processSprinkle the gelatin over cold water (the 63ml water) in a small bowl and let it rest for 1-2 minutes to soften. (or dalam bahasa melayu, kembang)

Add the glucose syrup and the glycerin and stir until the mixture is smooth and clear (if the mixture is not turning smooth and clear, microwave it for an additional 15 to 20 seconds on high and stir again)

but what i did, i put all the three ingredients (glycerin, glucose n shortening). does it matter?

let the mixture cool down.. and now, we gonna start the kneading process!! (uli-uli) =D
Sift about 500g of the sugar into a large bowl

Make a hole in the sugar and pour the liquid mixture to it

Stir with a wooden/plastic spoon until the mixture becomes sticky

i tak ada alat canggih so guna tenaga manusia.. hehe

Sift some of the remaining sugar onto a smooth work surface/dining table maybe? and add as much of the remaining sugar as the mixture will take
(p/s: Make sure you make fondant on a clean and smooth working surface.

Jewelry on your fingers or wrists or fluffy clothing could hurt the fondant’s surface)

Knead the fondant, adding a little more sugar if necessary, to form a smooth, pliable mass! =)
(p/s: Rub the vegetable shortening on your thumbs and knead it into the fondant. you may use olive oil too.. seriously, this is fun! try it)
u can use breadmaker thingy to knead but i prefer u to use HAND! just make sure they r clean. =)

OMG.. finally i did this.. =')

Wrap the fondant in plastic wrap and place it in a tightly sealed container to prevent it from drying out

Leave the dough overnight for a better result. Store in an airtight container and u can keep in room temperature okay?? XD so try it n have fun!
next ill show how to colour it and decorate cake by using fondant icing.. so selamat mencuba!

assalamualaikum! =)
