What is MM Fondant and is there a Recipe?
Marshmallow Fondant is Fun, Fun, Fun!
Most topsy turvy cakes use fondant 'icing' to get that fabulous, smooth look and those great colors. You can purchase pre-made fondant, but can you make it yourself? Here is one answer I found...
From the What's Cooking America web site:
QUESTION: What is MM Fondant and is there a Recipe? Thanks.
ANSWER: "MM Fondant is a fondant type icing that is easily made at home. The ingredients are few and accessible in any local grocery market. The primary ingredients are Marshmallows and powdered sugar. True fondant is quite difficult to make and expensive because of the time to make it and the ingredients that are needed. Most folks purchase a premade true fondant."
