- 1-lb. bag fondant mix (this is like powdered sugar - buy it at candy-making stores for about $2.50)
- 6 tbsp. unsalted butter
- 3 tbsp. cream (or half-and-half)
- Flavorings colorings (See requirements in 3rd paragraph below)
Melt butter in cream in a medium pan, over low heat, just until butter melts. Remove from heat. Dump in entire bag of fondant mix. Stir with fork until lumps are gone, then knead with your immaculately clean hands.
