Cooked Fondant

This is what you’re looking for to put the icing on the cake, hahaha.

2 cups of sugar 2/3 cups of cold water 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

Boil the sugar and water stir until sugar is dissolved. Add cream of tartar. Continue to boil until syrup reaches soft ball stage 234 to 238 F (Ball flattens but doesn’t ooze between your fingers). For any crystals on the side of pan wipe down with knife wrapped in a wet cloth. Pour onto large platter or marble to cool. When mix is cool beat with a wooden spoon until mix is white and creamy. Knead on platter until smooth. Cover with damp towel and in an hour knead again and keep in an airtight container. This can be used to make flowers and leaves, spread on the cake or mix with chocolate and dip strawberries into.
