How to Restore Hardened Fondant



The other day I wanted to make a peony from sugarpaste.
I like to mix fondant with Tylose to create a gumpaste for flowers.
So I went to get some fondant out of the pail and realized that I hadn't
completely secured the lid to for an airtight seal.
When I touched the fondant with my metal spoon, it was hard as a rock!
I began to dig out the hardened fondant to throw it away.
I had essentially lost about 2 lbs of fondant! ARRRRGH!

My friend, Susie Hazard, had just told me that she had just read that platinum paste could be restored by microwaving and rolling it out. So I wondered if it would work on fondant.
I took about a 3 inch size ball of the "rocky road" fondant and microwaved it for 5 seconds on high power.

Next I placed it on my fondant board that was generously spread with vegetable shortening, and rolled it thin. It really worked!! All the lumps and bumps disappeared.
The fondant was smooth and restored back to it's softened state.
I continued to do this until all 2 lbs of fondant was restored!!
