Whenever I see a fondant cake, I just sit and stare and admire the beauty. It’s a work of art that is so smooth and perfect, but then I get a taste and Yuck!!! That is until I came across a recipe for marshmallow fondant and I was hooked. This is so easy to make at home and taste yummy.
Here is what you will need:
– 2 lb bag of Confectioner Sugar
– 1 1/2 bags of Marshmallow
– 3 tablespoons of water
Here is what you need to do:
Put marshmallows in bowl with the 3 tablespoons of water. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until melted and creamy.
Add 1/2 of the bag of confectioners sugar and mix as best as you can.
Pour about 3/4 of the other 1/2 of the confectioner sugar on a mat and then pour the contents of the marshmallow on top. This is where it gets messy.
Knead with your hands until you have a smooth ball of fondant. If it feels sticky, just keep adding powder sugar until it is nice and smooth.
I am just using it for cupcakes today, so I took half of it and wrapped it in plastic wrap and then placed it in a zip lock bag to store in the fridge.
I mixed the other half with some food coloring and then wrapped it up in plastic wrap and placed it in the fridge for about 2 hours to set.
In the meanwhile I cleaned everything up and took out my tools to roll everything out. I have these really fun cookie molds that I just love to use with this fondant. I got this mold from houseonthehill.net. They make the most beautiful molds and I treasure everyone that I have.
When rolling out the fondant make sure everything is coated in powdered sugar. You must understand at this time water is your enemy, so don’t go washing your hands and touching the fondant.
There are so many things you can do with this fondant. You can just cover a cake smoothly or mold out a flower or maybe even spell something out. Sky’s the limit 😉
I just chose to make pretty cupcakes for my daughters track team.
