A few years ago after watching several inspiring episodes of Cake Boss I decided I wanted to learn how to use fondant.
I quickly learned that store bought fondant tastes funky, and homemade is time consuming and has some odd ingredients
So when a cake making friend of mine told me about marshmallow fondant I was super excited. It is very easy to make, has easy to find ingredients, and it tastes good.
It’s a winner.
If you’re new to using fondant, it’s a lot like playdoh, its soft stretchy, and moldable. You can start small with just some decorations or cut outs and work your way up to full cakes. It makes great hearts, flowers, letters, pretty much any cookie cutter you have can be used to make a fondant creation.
Or if you’ve used it before this is a quick, easy recipe that will make your cakes look and taste fabulous!
Here’s how to make it.
Step 1– Gather your supplies- You’ll need 2 bags of Mini Marshmallows
1- Bag of Powdered Sugar + a little extra
1- Tbsp of Water
1- tsp Vanilla (clear if you’re making white fondant)
You’ll also need a large bowl, a large spoon, a microwave, and a clear surface- if you have any kind of mat to put down on your surface it will make clean up much easier.
Step 2– Put your marshmallows in your bowl and add water & vanilla- basically you’ll have wet marshmallows.
Watch out for dragons… they love wet marshmallows.
It is kind of weird how it mixes in, it kind of resists at first, just keep stirring.
