To Make Fondant Icing Recipe

I used

  • 1 pack of icing sugar/500g
  • 1/4 teaspoon CMC
  • 35ml Water
  • 1 heaped tablespoonfuls liquid glucose
  • 1 tablespoon Gelatine


  1. Sift the flour into an empty dry bowl, add CMC, stir and set aside.
  2. Add 35ml of cold water in a plate, sprinkle the 1 heaped tablespoon of gelatine and leave to sit for about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add water to a saucepan, heat and don’t allow it to boil please. Place the plate of the soaked gelatine on hot water in the saucepan still on heat, stir until it dissolves completely.
  4. Add the 1 tablespoon liquid glucose, stir to also dissolve completely. Watch the video below to see how its done.
  5. Leave the gelatine mixture to cool completely, divide the icing sugar, then add the gelatine mixture little at a time, stir, until you exhaust it.
  6. Add the remaining icing sugar, knead until you get a stretchy and non-sticky dough.
  7. Store in a cellophane bag for about 24 hours before use.
