I’ve always been afraid of making my own fondant. It sounded hard and I don’t really like the taste of it. However, I came across a simple recipe for marshmallow fondant. It sounded good and looked easy to make. I decided to give it a whirl.
It turned out it’s very easy to make and I was able to make 2 different colors without any trouble. I used it to shape into apples to top my cupcakes with. It looked really cute.
Marshmallow Fondant (recipe from Clockwork Lemon )
2 handfuls of mini marshmallows
4 drops of icing color
1-2 c. powdered sugar
1. Put the marshmallows in a medium microwave safe bowl. Heat in intervals of 10 seconds until the marshmallows are puffed up and easy to stir. Divide into two bowls (for two colors). Put 3-5 drops of color in each bowl and mix well.
2. Mix in powdered sugar slowly until the mixture becomes a soft dough. Grease your hands with butter and turn the fondant onto a table sprinkled with powdered sugar.
3. Knead the fondant until it is stiff enough to roll out.
4. Roll and use as you would any fondant. If the dough becomes too hard, knead in a small amount of butter. If it becomes too sticky add additional powdered sugar.
**To store, simply wrap well in plastic wrap and place in a zip top baggies. Place in a cupboard. It will last 3-4 months.

Probably tastes way better than something you would buy in the store to use. Good for you!
You make fondant sound like something even I could make. I am the world's worst cake decorator, but maybe there is hope.
This looks like a great treat. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!
