near cupcake catastrophe

After brunching last Sunday, I attempted to try to make poured fondant from scratch for the first time. The directions are on that link and require a kitchenaid (which I didn't have available), but the actual recipe uses a food processor (which I had). Suffice it to say, the confusion of switching between links and varying the recipe due to lack of ingredients made for a very nerve-wrecking experience.

When I went to re-heat the fondant, it cooled too quickly, and things got ugly.

Luckily, all hope was not lost and I quickly got the hang of things.

I'll post pictures when I attempt it again :)

I would totally eat the rejects, if there were any. The rest are too pretty to eat... but I think I would eat them eventually if offered. But they look awesome nonetheless.

What's your recipe for homemade fondant? I want to try it, but I don't want it to be an expensive experiment...

If you click the link, there's both the recipe for the poured fondant (http://www.ochef.com/744.htm) and instructions on how to make it with a kitchenaid mixer. All you'll really need is sugar, water, corn syrup and whatever color/flavor you want to add to it. I'm not sure how the recipe works as pliable play-dough like fondant, but it works well as poured fondant for things like petit fours.

If you're looking for a cheap fondant recipe, you can also try making it with marshmallows (http://candy.about.com/od/fondantcandyrecipes/r/mm_fondant.htm). good luck!! Let me know how it turns out.
