Another new recipe I had never attempted. Let me test stuff for you and let you know what to look out for. I had a general idea of what it took to make this happen. Basically powdered sugar and marshmallows. For my first attempt at making fondant, I would say it came out pretty amazing. It was really easy too!
- 2 bags of Mini Marshmallows
- 1/4 cup Water
- 9-10 cups Powdered Sugar
In a microwave-safe bowl add your marshmallows and water. Microwave for 1-2 minutes. Until the marshmallows are melted.
Mix together marshmallows until the mixture is smooth. ( if you plan on adding color it is much easier to add the color now)
Add 2 or 3 cups of powdered sugar and mix until combined.
Add one more cup at a time. Once you get to about 8-9 cups of sugar, knead the mixture on a flat powdered surface. Keep adding sugar until the fondant is no longer sticky but smooth.
Roll out and decorate!
All you need is marshmallows, a whole lot of powdered sugar, and a tiny bit of water.
Get your marshmallows into a microwave-safe bowl.
Add a 1/4 cup of water and pop the bowl in the microwave until melted.
It should be puffy and warm after about a minute and should just mix right in.
Mix until smooth and there are no marshmallow chunks left. If you want your fondant to have color it is easiest to color it at this step.
Begin by adding 2 or 3 cups of sugar and mix in all the way (it can be a little messy so be careful). At this point, I had mixed in 4 cups and this is the consistency.
This was about 7 cups of powdered sugar. Still pretty sticky.
Add another cup of sugar to the bowl. I know it looks like nothing is there but I promise it’s just a giant cutting board. So, you want to have a flat surface with powdered sugar sprinkled over to roll out the rest of the sugar and marshmallows.
This is 9 cups of sugar and ready to roll out. As usual, be careful of sticking, and be sure you have plenty of powdered sugar.
Rolls out beautifully.
I decided to do a marble design and roll it out.
Make sure your cake is iced and ready for fondant.
I rolled it out thin enough to make sure it drapes nicely.
Lay over the top and cut the edges.
This is the second time I have used fondant and the first time I have made it and it was a success in my eyes (hopefully yours too).
It cuts beautifully and easily. I honestly think this fondant might be better than regular fondant. Like you could actually eat and like this. Not too sweet believe it or not. Hopefully, you guys found this recipe useful and easy to follow. Be sure to comment below on any questions you have or maybe suggestions. I loved this recipe and would make it again. Let’s continue to catch the wave together, see ya next week!
