I failed before I even managed to make the fondant. I was using a recipe with corn syrup and tried to make sugar syrup (no corn syrup in Germany) but that didn't work out. I have another recipe now though that should work so I'll definitely try again!
Mhmm, fondant is very tricky to make. So you might better go to a bakery store and buy a package. If you do, buy white since you can colour it. Though if you need red or black, buy those too, since you can't colour it bright red or dark black, because it'll need so much colouring it will leak on your fingers.
