Hello everybody, I have read many wonderful news about Michele Foster's fondant recipe so I decided to look up the recipe. I noticed that it called for a stand mixer in order to mix the fondant, but sadly I do not own a stand mixer. But I really want to test out the recipe, is there any way that I can make the fondant without the use of a stand mixer? I have a Kitchenaid 5 speed hand mixer. Will this be strong enough to make the fondant? Thank you to everyone for their help.
Can you make rolled fondant without a stand mixer?
Just kneed it. You can mix it in a greased bowl with a well greased wooden spoon. You don't add all of the powdered sugar though, maybe all but 2 cups, then knead it on a powdered sugar covered surface and that is when you add the remaining sugar. Or, you could put a lot of powdered sugar on your counter and dump the wet ingredients on top, grease your hands and mix/knead adding the remaining sugar. That's how I do mine.

I use my stand mixer to make my marshmallow fondant, but I can do it by hand too...I only prefer the stand mixer because it's less messy, and less work! lol I would NOT use a hand mixer...the motor will burn out on it before it's even done. (Regardless of how you do it, it still will require some kneading)
