Quick Pour Fondant Icing
For best results, cakes or petits fours should be covered with a thin layer of seedless jam, almond paste, or a perfectly smooth layer of frosting before covering it with the fondant. The fondant will give the cake a smooth, glossy surface.
For Chocolate Poured Fondant: follow recipe as directed, but increase water by 2 tablespoons. After fondant is heated, stir in 3 ounces of melted unsweetened or bittersweet chocolate, then add flavoring.
