Light and refreshing, perfect to enjoy on a hot afternoon.
- 500 mL Water
- 2/3 cup(s) White Sugar
- 8 Sprigs Mint
- 300 mL vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) Sauvignon Blanc
- 2 teaspoon(s) Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
Mix golden syrup, vegetable shortening, and salt in a large bowl. Beat in vanilla extract and cornflour.
Slowly stir in icing sugar, about 1 cup at a time, mixing in the sugar thoroughly each time before adding the next cup. Fondant will become increasingly stiff; if too sticky, add more cornflour and icing sugar to make an easily-workable dough.
Turn fondant onto a work surface generously dusted with cornflour; roll to desired thickness or work into desired shape.
