First we will prepare the puffs (once separate and if we are to use white part only). Add butter and a splash of water and bring to the microwave for 1 minute at best (you have to be careful not to burn! The best thing is to give 20/30 seconds and then blended to give you other 20/30 seconds).

You'll know the time has passed when the clouds swell and become either very soft almost like a very thick caramel. Mix well and begin to slowly add the powdered sugar. Stir constantly.

In a moment we will not add more sugar is normal! It is time then to put our fondant on the table and form a kind of mountain with the remaining sugar. You can then begin to knead with your hands (very clean!) For the rest of the sugar is incorporated. How do you know your fondant is ready? At one point going to be able to work it without you stick to your fingers ready!

Now that the issue will be ready fondant to stretch and give it the desired shape.

Shelf life:

You can freeze (slathered in butter and covered with plastic wrap, plus a freezer bag). You can also do the same to keep in the refrigerator (up to 3 months).
