How To Make The Marshmallow Fondant

Easy Recipe on How To Make Fondant

If you wan to decorate a cake or a cupcake or make any edible decorations with fondant, I suggest to you that you start with the marshmallow fondant. You can buy fondant at your local stores, but they taste horrible (in my opinion). The marshmallow fondant taste better and it's easy to make. I must admit, it's very messy and sticky, but that's the fun part of it.

You will need:

* 1 bag of powder sugar.

* 1 bag of mini marshmallows

* 1 can of Crisco

* Microwaveable bowl

* 1 teaspoon of water

* Food coloring

Now, Spread lots of crisco on the table or counter and take almost half of the powder sugar and spread it on the counter top. Put all the mini marshmallow on the microwaveable bowl and first start with 30 seconds, take out and mix it together. Put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds and again mix it.

Bring the melted marshmallow to the table and spread it all over the powder sugar on the counter.

*Now put some nice amount of crisco around your hands and fingers because it's going to get sticky and messy.

With your hands, mix together the marshmallow and the sugar power with the teaspoon of water.

After Making Your Fondant Recipe, Place the Fondant On The Cake

Learn how to place the fondant on your cake.

Once you are ready to create your cake, you use a rolling pin and roll the fondant on the counter top. Remember to put sugar on the counter before doing this. I always use buttercream frosting on the cake before putting the fondant. This will help the fondant stick to the cake and it creates a smooth surface.

When you have the size that you desired, with the same rolling pin, place the fondant on top of the cake.

Use a fondant smoother that will help with the surface and it smooths it evenly.

Remember that the fondant is now like a play dough, you will need o kneel the color in the fondant until is all the color you want it.

Make sure all the fondant is saturated with the food coloring or you will have patches and the color would not be even.
