I live in Hungary and many ingredients available in the UK and USA are not available here. Ready-made fondant icing is one of them. OK – I can overcome that problem, I can make my own. I haven’t got the muscle power to make the continental fondant on a marble slab so to get a good rolling paste, Australian fondant icing is the best alternative I have come across. It gives a very pliable and smooth finish– but every recipe calls for white vegetable fat (I also use it in the recipe for the flower paste) – big problem – nothing like that here. Using white lard has been suggested but that is not sold here either – all lard has been rendered and has a strange smell and taste. Can anyone suggest a recipe that doesn’t use fat - one that would give a good result?
