HI! I have a client that is asking for a cake with a tinkerbell figurine, and she wants all organic (no corn syrup). Does anybody know if there is a recipe out there to make organic fondant?
can I use marshmallow fondant to make figurines? remember... I can not add corn syrup.
Marshmallows contain corn syrup, you would either need to get organic marshmallows or organic icing sugar, gelatin and corn syrup.
thanks Neryl! I think the corn syrup restriction is a problem ...
ORganic Corn syrup
Maybe she thinks "organic corn syrup" as over 85% of US corn crops are genetically modified [Cornstarch may be out also] Or maybe she's referring to HFCS debate .. Time to ask her again exactly her reservations are ..
Make your own gumpaste use Organic Cane Syrup, UK/AU golden syrup, maple syrup, rice syrup, or any of the other glucose syrups ... or just use pastillage ..
Thanks a lot for all the information!!!! I used a marshmallow cream made with maple syrup instead, it was not hard so instead of making a tinkerbell figurine I bought a candle (I did not have much of a choice as I was finding options on the local stores and shipping from online purchase was not going to arrive on time)... I made the marshmallow fondant using the cream for accents in the cake, I like the way it looked!! She loved it!!!
I'll keep all the information you ladies sent so next time, I'll be prepare!!!
Most commercial sugarpastes - Satin Ice, Fondx, Fondarific, Pettinice, Wilton, fondx, fondarific, Regalice, Bakels, Orchard, Choco-Pan, etc - none of them contain gelatine.
