Fondant is a common name for fondant icing. Fondant is made of a thick paste of a mixture of sugar and water and comes in different colors and flavors. The thick paste is used to sculpt cakes and various pastries. Traditionally, cakes have been decorated using royal icing or marzipan. Fondant is however increasingly becoming popular because it doesn’t require an almond meal, which is a common allergen.
There are two types of fondant namely;
(a). Rolled fondant: Rolled fondant’s texture is similar to that of stiff clay. An example of rolled fondant is Wilton Fondant and gum paste silicone mold fabric
(b). Poured fondant: A creamy confection of thick liquid. Mostly used for filling or coating cakes or pastries.
