Testing rolled fondant consistency
To test the consistency of the rolled fondant that you made, simply stretch part of the fondant using your fingers. If fondant stretches about 2-3 inches before tearing, the consistency of the fondant is perfect.
If fondant is too stiff (tears very quickly once pulled apart) add a bit of water and continue kneading. If fondant is too runny, add more cornstarch.
Let fondant rest over night before using. This allows all ingredients to blend together resulting in a perfect consistency.
