Someone want to tell me what this stuff is and can I make it at home? Or is it some special stuff you have to get from a specialty dealer?

Rook, cool

I know Ch mentioned it in a thread I posted about the American Flag design but he did not go into detail I am hoping he will see this and give some more detail.I looked it up on the web but got a lot of other junk instead.

Rook, sorry about that. I always used Carma's Massa Ticino. Essentially I believe all it really is, is a european version of rolled fondant. Regalice is another similar product I believe. It's nothing more really than a sugarpaste that is very pliable, takes color well and will dry to hold it's shape without getting hard like royal icing would. I don't have a recipe handy for rolled fondant, but it should be easy enough to get one if you want to give it a shot. It's fun to work with. Think of it as high class play doh.

Yes,
We will be holding the welcome to Dallas class.
You will need to stop by the bakery to meet.
Hopefully show me a copy of the HUGE check you got!!
We close at 3, so after that, you swing by the house with all your friends to join us for dinner. They will know where we are. Brookhaven Golf Course.
Bring kids and swim trunks.
Don't feel obligated, though. I will only have been cooking for 2 days:lol: not!
! Well, maybe I'll fire the smoker. Ya'll eat meat?:lips:

Rook I can't find my recipe for it, so I looked one up for the rolled fondant. I*t's pretty user friendly, but if you want you can go to Albert Uster http://auiswiss.com (it's a bit slow to come up, and order the Massa Ticino from Carma.
OTherwise here is a link to a recipe for the rolled fondant.
