Fondant Cake
So I have always disliked the taste of fondant.
I figured I’d try Marshmallow Fondant, and honestly it’s not so bad :)
It was pretty easy to work with, and took color really well.
For my first try I liked the outcome. Can’t wait to try again! :)
Marshmallow Fondant
From Wilton

16 ounces mini marshmallows
2-5 tablespoons water
2lbs confectioners sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
In a glass bowl combine 2 tablespoons water and the mini marshmallows.
I microwaved the marshmallows for about 1 1/2 minutes.
Place melted marshmallows into
stand mixer bowl that is lightly greased with shortening.
For this you’ll want to use your dough hook.
Add about 3/4 of the sugar to the marshmallows on low speed to combine.
Once a ball forms start kneading on sugar dusted counter top.

-1/2 cup shortening is for counter top/dipping hands in if you choose to use it.
I did use it to cover my hands,
but I found that the powdered sugar worked better on the counter top
Make sure to knead for about 8 minutes.
If the fondant is too dry add a little bit of water,
in this case a little goes a long way.
Once you can feel that the fondant is smooth and not tearing rub the fondant with a little shortening and double wrap in plastic. It’s best to let it sit overnight.
Next day you can knead and color as desired.

    They look great! I’m going to have to look for a marshmallow fondant recipe too. You are the 2nd person I’ve heard say you don’t like the taste of regular fondant, but the marshmallow’s not so bad.

    They are STUNNING! Where did you get the recipe? I’d look like @Jodi is going to do, but I see the results of your recipe, and hope to get the same.
