Jeanne, Thank you for all your help. It’s getting down to the wire. I decided that it was more important to feel comfortable with the working of the fondant than going for the taste of the chocolate. I just ordered a 15 il. tub of Pettinice in Ivory from Jesters Cake Supply (Fondantsource.com) They have for first time buyers a 10% coupon. Upon check-out put in the promotion box “welcome”. The 15 lb. was 44.99 less 4.50, shipping was 11.71. I feel more confident as I have practiced with the fondant, than smoothing out the MBC “just so”. Patricia, you do such a good job of this!
Anyway, I hope I like the Ivory color. I’ve been practicing my piping skills with Royal Icing all morning. Just doing Swiss dot pattern. I have aGranite surface in my kitchen. Does the corn starch have a funny taste when put to the Fondant? You advise using it instead of confectioners sugar?
Thanks again…I’ll let you know my progress.
