The most successful one so far I've been using 1 Tbsp gelatin in 1/4 C water, 1/2 C corn syrup, 1 Tbsp glycerin, 2-lbs powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp shortening for kneading. It seems fine at first and then get super sticky after it sets. Very not yummy. I'm a chemist by training so I am thinking that the glycerin may be too much.
So, I have been trying to make fondant from scratch because no baker in town will even attempt it. I have tried three or four recipes that all come out WAY too sticky. Smooth and pliable, but fairly sticky. Having never worked with fondant before, how stiff should it be when I work with it? Anyone have a decent recipe or ideas on how to make it stiffer? They last recipe I used took about 9 cups of powdered sugar and was still tacky.
