Jennifer Dontz Candy Clay Oozing Mess! - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Thread Starter 
Well, I used the Super White Merckens candy clay in the Pettinice fondant according to Jennifer Dontz's recipe and even though I over stirred it and created panic in myself after it oozed and sat in a milky puddle - it rested overnight and after kneading it again it was fine. It worked GREAT in the recipe - no tears or stretching at all.
I was so relieved and happy and will never overwork the candy clay again icon_smile.gif

Isn't that just the best stuff? I love how it gives more "stretchability" (for lack of a better word) to the fondant. And you can't beat the taste.

This really is a miracle, I made my first batch last night, and tested it tonight.... I feel like I've found religion... lol!

A question, how thin is it safe to roll it? I rolled it so thin tonight I could see right through it, just to see how far I could push it. If I roll it too thin on a wedding cake, am I taking any kind of risk? I'm sure it's on the DVD, but I don't have it yet, my friend is sending it to me as a gift and it's still in transit from overseas. lol... she said I needed it after I cried on her shoulder about spending two hours trying to roll out my pettinice (the only kind we can get here).

It's a shame we can't get corn syrup here in NZ, I had to get an imported bottle (super expensive), so I'll be testing it with glucose next, which is readily available. Can't wait to try that too, I love kitchen experiments!

This has really made my day! I just finished my first tiered cake last week, it took me almost six hours to roll out the fondant due to sticking and ripping and stretching. I'm doing my second tiered cake for a friends wedding next week, and my confidence is a bit shaken. This will help, I know it will!

Zespri -

Did you try my recipe?

With it, you can roll it THIN, but to tell you the truth, I've never pushed it to SUPER thin like you are describing. I do know it's MUCH stronger that straight from the package Pettinice. You can use glucose, PM me k? I'll lookup the ratio. I usually put it around 1/8", sometimes a bit less.

This is one of my best investments in my DVD Collection. Your baking technique produces a perfect cake every time. Bought the chocolate but have to order the fondant. I usually make MMF but will try the Pettinice.

Hi cakesnglass!

I'm THRILLED you like my DVD's! If you have any questions at all, I'm here to help.

Yes, please do try the Pettinice. I highly recommend, at least the first time around, using the exact ingredients in my recipes. Otherwise, you won't know how they should come out/perform.

Hope you have a blessed holiday season.
