corn syrup or glucose
I'm trying to make Fondant a home and my recipe calls for Glucose Syrup..I wasn't able to find any clear Glucose Syrup in the stores.. I saw Wilton had Glucose for Gum Paste but it didn't seem like a syrup. I was wondering if you can tell me where to get it from or do if you know a good brand so I can try ordering it online. Also I was wondering if you think Lite Corn Syrup would do..
My recipe calls for Shortening..it doesn't exactly tell what kind of shortening though...
Do you use vegetable shortening generally?
I would really appreciate any advice on this.
Thanks so much!
From the editor:
You can buy glucose syrup here, or you can use light corn syrup in place of glucose syrup in the recipe.
Have you tried our recipe for marshmallow fondant? The ingredients are really simple - marshmallows, water and powdered sugar and best of all, it's really easy to make.
Shortening for sweet recipes like buttercream always refers to vegetable shortening.
