  1. Combine the gelatine powder with cold water and let stand till thickened.
  2. Place gelatine mixture into microwave and heat till liquid (approx 30 secs)
  3. Heat glucose and glycerine approx 1 min, mix well with melted gelatine. Stir in Trex (and just before completely melted), (if adding stir in vanilla extract). Mixture should cool until lukewarm.
  4. Place 3/4 of the Icing Sugar of your choice in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and using a dough hook, on low (speed 1) stir in the lukewarm gelatine mixture. Mix in sugar and add more a little at a time, until stickiness disappears.
  5. Knead in remaining sugar and gum trag (depending on stretch you like). Knead until the sugar paste is smooth, pliable and does not stick to your hands.
  6. If sugar paste is too soft, add more sugar; if too stiff, add water (a drop at a time). Use fondant immediately or store in airtight container in fridge.
  7. When ready to use, bring to room temperature and knead again until soft.

Store in trex coated clingfilm and in a ziplock bag. Can be frozen if needed.
