Südzucker Classic Fondant – the all-round product for numerous applications
Fondant is a pasty confectionery consisting of sugar and glucose syrup. It is cooked to the soft-ball stage, cooled slightly, and stirred or beaten to incorporate air, until it is an opaque mass with a creamy consistency. The microfine sugar crystals give the product its creamy consistency and the smooth, tender glaze.
Südzucker Classic Fondant is mainly used to produce a range of fondants for fondant dipping, fudges, buttercreams, and confectionery fondant fillings.
Whether Fondant is to be used in bakeries or on an industrial scale, Classic Fondant made by Südzucker sweetens, decorates, fills and preserves the freshness of fine cakes and pastries.

Südzucker classic Fondant is more sensitive than crystalline sugar. Whether packed in pails, cartons, barrels or bags, the following applies to all Fondant packages: The optimum storage temperature is 20 +/- 5 °C.
To avoid destroying the microfine crystals, the temperature must never exceed 40 °C –– not even for short periods of time. Südzucker classic Fondant is best stored in its original packaging which should be firmly closed after the desired quantity has been removed.
Our technical support can help you to formulate your customised recipe/industrial packaging based on your application and equipment.
Fabulous Fondant Facts
Fondant comes from the French “fondre” which means “to melt” and implies the most important quality feature of our products: micro-fine crystals for a particularly delicate glaze.
The royal court bakers had to keep Marie Antoinette in good spirits every day with sweet little treats. Because of this and because of the many intoxicating festivals at the time, a clever confectioner, later called patissier in France, invented a sugar mixture for impressive decorations.
It was more than 450 years ago, but this magical substance still inspires us today and is the favourite material of all confectioners. New techniques and methods of modelling with fondant are constantly being invented.
The most unusual fondant cake ever: a fondant-covered race car. This edible vehicle travels at a speed of 27.48 km/h (17.08 mph), weighs 649 pounds and was created by a celebrity cake artist. It was even featured in the Guinness Book of Records.
