Snjezana the glaze is much better when you make it from little melted fondan.The fondan stay dry,but very hard to get some where …..200g.Bakery shops get this in bucked ( 20 L )
Snjezana I buy from IGA supermarket the glaze (fondan) for the choux pastry 500g for $ 1.50 and when I want to use I reheat in microwave for 30 second and quickly brush it the top.This is the right one.You can ask at bakery shop as well.Have a nice day.
