fondant icing

Hi! I recently began a cake baking business but is experiencing great disappointment and embarrassment in the use of Fondant Icing. It never hardens and on one occasion it began melting during the wedding! Could I get all available information related to the ingredients required, amounts and correct mixing method to achieve that elegant finish? These are the quantities I use:

2pkts icing sugar
2tblsp glucose syrup
2tblsp gelatine
1/2tsp pastilage
1tsp lemon juice
2 eggwhite
2tsp glycerine
1tsp vanilla
Thank you.

Why don't you buy it?

There are several places online to buy good tasting, high quality fondant. If you are wanting to make it yourself, I suggest the marshmallow fondant recipe that is both easy and inexpensive.
