If you want to color your fondant let’s say pink I cannot see why you could not use raspberry jam instead. I just always use the apricot jam.

Such as another flavour of jam or perhaps a total substitute to it? Thanks in advance!

The fondant can be flavored but I have never found them to dry without any filling. Cupcakes with poured fondant should be freshly baked (a moist cupcake recipe is good) and then brushed with the abricot jam for sealing and then dipped in the fondant. Some brush a little sugar syrup on the cupcakes before the abricot jam to add a little moisture. But I find that too sweet.

I have always been accustomed to buttercream, and I am worried that there won’t be enough flavor in the poured fondant and the finished cupcakes will turn out too dry without buttercream.

Thanks so much, Your blog is amazing!

You cannot taste it.

It needs to be thick but still with a pouring consistency. I would not use a hand mixer to make the pf from scratch.

Those pink fondant covered cupcakes are gorgeous looking. I tried to make it today using Martha Stewart’s PF. Unfortunately it didnt come out that good. It kind of flowed by the side of cupcake. It doesn’t stick to the cupcake much. Can u tell me what I can do. I have a hand mixer and was wondering if I can use your recipe for PF with hand mixer. Thanks a lot!

Those pink fondant covered cupcakes looks so pretty. I tried it today and used martha stewarts poured fondant recepie and I had problems with it. when i dip my cupcakes into the fondant and take it out and keep it. It’s kind of flowing by the sides of cupcakes. I mean it doesn’t stick to the cupcake much. I have a hand mixer and was wondering if I can use your recipe of poured fondant.

It’s a UK brand called Regalice. It is important that you only melt on the lowest power and only for a few secs at a time. Take out and stir gently and then heat if needed.

I have store bought and I everytime I heat it in the microwave it just clumps together and then boils? Maybe it is too high temp? Do you reduce the microwave power?
