Sugar Paste (1): My first not-so-successful attempt

I tried making sugar paste (or fondant) today. Got the recipe from Baking Mum. I was inspired by her creations and got tempted to try.

One part of the recipe calls for making a well in the icing sugar and pouring the mixture into it. Silly me made the sugar well on a lined table top instead of a bowl. I had a hard time kneading the dough as everything was super sticky! My hands seemed to be binded by super sticky paint! I had to add a lot more icing sugar before I could get the stuff off my hands. In the end, my sugar paste seemed to be too dry. Let's see what it'll turn out to be tomorrow.

Mood: gloomy
