Icing sugar8 cups
Liquid Glucose1/2 cup
Gelatin 2 tbsp
Ghee/ shortening2 tbsp
Glycerin 1 tbsp
Vanilla essence1 tsp
Water1/4 cup for gelatin


  • You can reduce the quantity first time as i did. I have used 2 cups of icing sugar. Here i will mention the actual quantities Rabia has given.
  • Take an extra large bowl and grease it with butter or ghee or shortening.
  • Add icing sugar in the bowl and make a well in the center of icing sugar.
  • Now soak gelatin in 1/4 cup water. Leave it for 5 minutes to swell. Its better to soak in a small pot so you can heat it directly.
  • Arrange all ingredients near stove.
  • Heat gelatin on very low flame till melt, start adding all other ingredients one by one and keep on stiring.
  • Take out glucose with spoon but transfer in pot with wet hands because it will stick with spoon and will be difficult to handle.
  • After adding all ingredients stir constantly till glucose dissolve. Remove from stove and let it cool a bit.
  • Pour this mixture in icing sugar well and do not forget to grease your hands.
  • Start kneading , you can add more icing sugar if required.
  • Fondant is ready ,wrap in cling sheet and store in air tight container.
  • Add color of your choice and enjoy making things.
  • I have used normal glycerin bought from a near by drug store.
  • I was not able to take pictures of every step because preparation method was really quick can say need sonic speed to make this fondant 😀 just kidding.
