Recently a very good friend asked me to do a cake for her boyfriend's birthday. We decided on the cake and theme and I knew it would need fondant. Fondant is the only way to make sculpted pieces or cover cake but the only problem is that classic fondant tastes disgusting! So I decided to try out marshmallow fondant and I must say I was very impressed!
The recipe is very simple
450g miny marshmallows
1 tsp extract of choice ( I used orange)
2-3 tsp food colouring gel
800g Icing Sugar
2-3 tsp butter
1 - Melt your marshmallows in the microwave for 1 minute.
2 - Add your extract and food colouring to the water and then stir into the marshmallows until they
are fully melted.
3 - Add your icing sugar slowly and stir. Half-way through this process I moved the mixture to my kitchenaid and continued to beat in the icing sugar a bit at a time.
4 - Finally turn the mixture out onto a sheet and rub down with the butter and knead until it is no longer sticky.
5 - Store in an air-tight container overnight.
6- Use to scult or cover as you will.
The from this fondant is another post.
