Evening I’m looking for a fondant recipe pls if anyone has one .
Thanks Dani if I looked on here there was a video I can’t remember who it was making it though.By volume
4 parts white sugar + 4 parts 2:1 syrup + 3 parts water
Boil the water and slowly add the sugar and syrup, stirring until all is dissolved. Heat until the temperature reaches 114°C. Cool without mixing, and when just warm to the touch begin to mix again and allow the mixture to air, it should lighten in colour.
How much are you making?
Then you haven't seen this then:i dont use bako or the like fondant folks
I have some sacks of organic sugar and I want to make some fondant for feeding colony’s , the fondant I use cost thrice the price buying from the suppliers .
I have the packaging boxes and reels of strong seliphane
But if you feed them enough syrup or leave them honey you won’t need
It’s nowt to do with my employer but again thanks for the recipe, I won’t post next time for help on here but thanks anyway.Why on earth are you trying to do this for a commercial unit? It will take you ages. Will they pay you a proper hourly rate for your time? Your employers must be mad. They can't produce organic honey after all, can they? Are you counseling them against this? You should be. You're the beekeeper after all ..... their noddles seem to be full of nonsense
Yeah maybe so but what’s wrong with a beefarmer making there own fondant most of it will get used for queen rearing .Well if you’d said it was an experiment you’d have got lots of different recipes and no single comment on why a bee farmer was making his own fondant
Probably get it direct from the Belgosuc UK agents - Wyefield Apiaries at Llangamarch wellsThen you haven't seen this then:
It's only less than twice the price of their regular fondant. It's only 86p per kilo more ... and Bako do deals on volume
This white soft fondant icing is ideal for covering cakes.• Ready-to-use• Softer finish for easier application• Made with finely crystallised sugars for a smoother mouthfeel• Bright white finishhbingredients.co.uk
Though, from any normal beekeeping viewpoint it's madness anyway ...
