I litterally just made this. I did not use the butter flavor but it seemed to be fine. It is hard to mix once adding the powdered sugar. I don't know if I melted it enough but mine was not clear like the picture. And mixing it with a spoon is quite difficult. I ended up getting down and dirty and using my hands (well my fiancé's hands) once he mixed the most of it (stuck to his hands) then it became the solid looking loaf. I would add the food coloring half way in between mixing in the powdered sugar. It's harder to blend in the color once its already solid. Also, it helps to have extra powdered sugar to make it less sticky when mixing. Almost like the actual fondont where they use extra powder. Hope this helps!

Alright, I made this and it tastes DELICIOUS! like seriously, I think I ate half of the recipe and gained 5lb's

On a negitave note I had a lot of issues working with the fondant It was exceptionally sticky, to the work surface and to my hands...I tried sugar on the surface and hands, but that made the fondant grainy and I tried water, but that decomposed the fondant.((any tips?))
