Today I actually made Fondant!  The first round of liquid sat on the home made double boiler (glass bowl on sauce pan with water).  When it came to temperature I lifted the HOT GLASS BOWL off the pan no problem, until the HOT STEAM escaped and hit my fingers.  I screamed and dropped the bowl which went careening to the ground splashing hot glucose all over my legs and floor— what a mess and Hot too!  For round two of liquid I used a towel for transfer (I know, so obvious) to the mixer for kneading.

It turned out marvelously.  Taste and texture are right on.  I am so proud!  That’s one small step for Cheryl, one giant leap for Bonobo Cakes.
