-How to make fondant that you ask? Well, for starters don??t make traditional fondant because it tastes gross. Try a simple white chocolate version and be sure to follow our fun do??s and fun don??ts of making fondant. First, melt your white chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds until melted. Then, stir one-third cup of light corn syrup into your melted candies. It will look grainy and that??s okay. Wrap in plastic wrap and let stand an hour or until firm. Next, knead your fondant in your hands until it??s pliable. If you wanna color it, this will be the time to add food coloring. When smooth, form into a flat disk and coat evenly with powdered sugar. Place wax paper on top of your fondant then roll it out. Flat the fondant over and place another piece of wax paper on the other side before rolling more. The wax paper lets you roll out the fondant without it sticking to your rolling pin. Once it rolled out to your desired thickness, trim your fondant to the shape you need. We measured our circle to equal our cake??s diameter plastic tape. Next, for a pro trick, roll your fondant up on to your rolling pin. Unroll your fondant over your cake for an easy transfer. Now, just slowly smooth out your fondant from the top down the sides of your cake. It??s okay if the wrinkles get it. Once smooth, trim your fondant edges. Lastly, you can cut shapes into any leftover fondant and decorate your cake with fun shapes or designs. And that??s it. You just created an awesome cake that looks like it came straight from a bakery.
