Satin Fondant Icing

Serves: 3
Total Calories: 1,260


3/4 cup water warm
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 pounds powdered sugar sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Food colo


In a 3-quart saucepan, combine water and corn syrup. Stir in powdered sugar until well blended. Over very low heat, stir with a wire whisk until barely lukewarm and sugar is dissolved (do not beat or bubbles will form.) Remove from heat.

Stir in vanilla and food color. If any small lumps are visible, pour the icing through a sieve. Use immediately while warm and thin. If too thick, add warm water 1 teaspoon at a time. If additional icing is needed, prepare a second batch separately.

* For a pure white icing, do not use vanilla extract. Colorless artificial vanilla can be purchased at specialty stores if desired. Other colorless extracts and liquid flavors are almond, coconut, banana, lemon and mint.
