How to Make Fondant – Yeners Homemade Fondant Recipe


Learn how to make Yeners Homemade Fondant

When I had my cake shop some years ago, we made dozens of cakes a week and needed about 30-50kg of fondant per week. As you can imagine, this would have cost a lot of money if I was to buy ready made fondant so we saved quite a lot of money making it ourselves.

At that time, our fondant recipe was quite complicated with many different things. It wasn’t as good as store-bought rolled fondant but it got us by for many years. Today, I want to share with you a simplified recipe that works well and only requires a few simple ingredients that are easily available to you.

In the past few years, I have been asked by many people for a fondant recipe so it brings me great joy to finally make this tutorial for you guys.

So here it is…My homemade fondant recipe! In this tutorial I show you how to make your own fondant at home with some very simple ingredients. This fondant recipe does not contain marshmallows like most homemade fondant recipes do and it should work ok in most weather types. I really hope you find this recipe useful.

    This is wonderful! I have a homemade fondant recipe that I’ve been using for years, but have never been 100% satified with. I can’t wait to try this out as I have tapioca starch and icing sugar mixture available to me but never thought of using them, or that there was a difference. Thank you again! I love these tutorials–I always learn the missing piece–*why* something occurs.

      When you say icing mix is it the premade buttercream icing mix u are referring to because we can’t find icing mix that has starch 5% in it. Here they call it confectioners sugar or powdered sugar. Is that the same?
