Ingredients: sugar, glucose syrup, hydrogenated vegetable oil (palm and rape seed), water, glycerine, tapioca starch, gum tragacanth (emulisifer), carboxymethyl cellulose (thickening agent), artificial flavor (vanillin), sodium acetate (preservative), and acetic acid (preservative).
so yes, it does contain glycerine. Looks like the only way they are going to be getting fondant is if you make some from scratch without. I know there is a replacement for glycerine, but I cannot for the life of me remember what it is!
I found this recipe on a yahoo answers post, but I have no idea if it will work. Its worth a shot though!
1/3 cup softened butter
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 lb sifted powdered sugar
1. In a large mixing bowl, blend the butter, corn syrup, vanilla and salt on medium speed with a paddle attachment until smooth and well-combined.
2. Add the powdered sugar all at once, and mix on slow speed, gradually increasing speed to medium until well-combined. The mixture should cling together in the bottom of the bowl and be smooth to the touch.
3. The fondant can now be rolled into balls, rolled thin and cut with cookie cutters, or stored for later use. Store in a cool dry place, wrapped tightly and placed in an airtight container.
Variations: To flavor, add extracts or oils in the beginning with the butter and corn syrup. To color, knead a small amount of your desired food coloring into the ball of fondant and work with hands until thoroughly combined.
hope this helps!
