Thread Starter 

im new to cake decorating and especially fondant

i mmade fondant with egg white

recipe. 1 egg white+ 1tbs honey+ 500g of powdered sugar

beat egg white until peaks form add honey then mix in the sugar until you get a pliable dough

the result came out ok at the begining the dough was pliable not crackin' so i stored it in the fridge for later use but when i took it out it was a little dry and crackin'

has anyone tried this recipe before??? 

what am i doin' wrong

For 1 egg white and 500g sugar, my recipe says 2 tablespoons honey ... if drying, add a smear of fat to loosen ...

 I'd be inclined to use pasteurized egg whites. Then again, I drive miles out of my way for pasteurized shell eggs.

Never heard of that type of fondant recipe - it sounds like it would be very dry no matter what since that's what egg whites and powdered sugar do - dry out.  What do you normally use this on?

It is one of the original sugarpaste recipes [from which all Rolled fondant recipes descend ..].

 

It can be easily coloured, but use a very light coloured honey, not a darker one that will interfer with the colouring. Try a paste or gel for a stronger colour. If you use an ordinary food colour that iws "watery", add slightly more icing sugar ...
