Thank you one and all. We had a lot of fun doing this. Morgan took the leftover fondant home and wants to make brownies covered with fondant. We'll see how that one turns out. Anyway, even at 19 she's a pretty good baker.

Nice job! The first time I made fondant, I put the leftover stuff in a bowl and forgot it out on the counter overnight. It hardened on so much that I couldn't get it off and ended up throwing the whole bowl out in the garbage.

It depends how hard it is but if it seems like the centre is soft, put in the microwave for 2 seconds at a time. Be careful, don't let it get too hot. It is sugar and burns (itself and you) very easily.

And it would probably last longer than the stuff you buy in the store!

But give the microwave a try and knead in some shortening.

Good try Linda! I always wanted to attempt to play with fondant. I am guessing it would be very fun.
