You can buy baker's ammonia on the King Arthur Flour site. They also have a cookie recipe using it.

The stuff in the Wilton's box is not fondant. It is a box of chemicals mixed with sugar with no resemblance to fondant whatsoever, except that you can roll it. It's disgusting.

If this is it, email me at It's a couple pages...
I actually have that copy...guess I better sit down and read it! Tks!
