       Title: Rolled Fondant
  Categories: Cheesecakes
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       3 tb Water
       1 tb Unflavored gelatin
     1/2 c  Corn syrup
       1 tb Glycerine
            =(can get at cake/candy
            -stores)
       2 tb Solid white shortening
       8 c  Powdered sugar
  
   I made this for a New Years Day celebration.  It is a
   wonderful icing with a flourless chocolate cake.  I got it
   from the cookbook, Rose’s Celebrations.
   
   Sprinkle gelatin over water and let it soften for 2 to 3
   minutes, or until completely dissolved.  Can put container
   in a pan of hot water to help it dissolve. Stir in corn
   syrup, glycerine and shortening.  Stir until almost
   completely melted and remove from heat.
   
   Place sugar in a large bowl and make well in center.  Add
   the gelatin mixture and stir with greased spoon until
   blended.  Mix with lightly greased hands and then knead
   vigorously in the bowl until most of the sugar is
   incorporated.  Turn onto a smooth surface and knead until
   smooth.  If seems to dry add a few drops of water and if
   too sticky, knead in more sugar. The fondant will resemble
   a smooth, well-shaped stone.  When dropped, it should
   spread very slightly but retain its shape.
   Wrap fondant tightly with plastic wrap and place in an
   airtight container. It will firm slightly on standing.JM.
