Allow the glucose mixture †✽ turn waterlike before pouring into ur sieved icing n cmc.

Careful at ds moment cos mixture is hot knead gently until u have a pilable dough if dough is too hard add water maybe a tablespoon at a time

Ur fondant melt or weep cos of

1 maybe u covered ice cold cake that is straight from the fridge or freezer. Always allow ur cake †✽ be at room temperature befor u ice n cover with fondant

2.Too much glycerin in ur recipe makes fondant weep. I don't use glycerin in my fondant recipe during rainy season I use glycerin in my fondant during harmattan.

Alway make u fondant a day or two before use,infact I make fondant a week ahead of any cake,I always have fondant available.

Don't keep ur fondant in the fridge.

It could be as a result of you putting too much of cmc into the fondant. Try not to allow your ingredients to be too much, and i bet u'll have a very smooth fondant.

@bece

I think you either have not kneaded it enough ( to make it more elastic) or it is too dry.When things are dry then they often need more water.
