Can I melt the fondant I bought to cover cakes and cookies?

Sheila - from Houston, TX

Although they include many of the same ingredients, rolled fondant and poured fondant are not the same. Rolled fondant cannot be successfully melted down to use as a poured icing. Try a poured fondant recipe for covering cakes, cupcakes or cookies, but remember that it doesn’t set up as hard as royal icing, so it can smudge.
