HOW TO: Easy Marshmallow Fondant Recipe


With Valentines Day around the corner I thought it would be the perfect time to share the best thing I learned a few years ago.

Marshmallow Fondant. 

When I use to sell cakes I used this recipe, everyone was amazed at my experience when I told them I had never been to Culinary School nor had I had any prior experience to making a cake of such extent. This fondant is not like ordinary fondant. It is quick, and easy to make and it doesn't just taste like a sugar overload. It has a pretty good marsmallow-y flavor to it and can easily be customized with extracts.

Here's what you do.

 


Here is what I made most recently using the Marshmallow Fondant.



 

Take a look at a few things I made using this fondant so you can see just how much this stuff can do!
 


Other things to know:

-Food coloring can be incorporated into the Marshamllows after being melted with the water. When adding foodcoloring at this time, add quickly and stir thouroughly. This is good for making all one color fondant, if you don't plan on using any other colors.

-Recipe can be halved, or adjusted and made in smaller containers and in smaller sizes or larger sizes but you must also adjust microwave time.

-To store fondant, put in tupperware, or wrap in parchment paper or wax paper and store all together in ZipLoc bags or tupperware.

-Cover to prevent from hardening.

 I hope you enjoy this recipe and use it some time! It can really make an ordinary cupcake look well made and professional. You can mold it, shape it, or cut it to fit any of your baked goods!

  1. Omg...really this works? I'm a buttercream cupcake decorator and haven't ventured into fondant land yet but I think I'd go broke if I kept on buying the boxes of fondant so i HAVE to try this! I'm teaching my 4th semester of decorating and knowing fondant would be just the right thing to step up my game!

    Thank you! I have to pin this and bookmark this so I don't forget it!!! =)

    Have a great weekend!!!

  15. How do you store it and for how long?

    1. You can store it I an airtight Tupperware for up to five days before it gets too hard and unworkable. It's best when fresh or used within two days.

  19. i'm interested in trying to decorate my first cake with fondant however am worried it won't turn out or will take me too long. can i make it ahead of time, say a wednesday, decorate it then and put it in the freezer until saturday for a party or will it ruin the fondant?

  22. Let me preface by saying it is my first time EVER baking a cake from scratch and decorating it, but I decided to go all out with the fondant too. Fondant has always seemed so tricky and intimidating, but this recipe is ridiculously easy and it has turned out great! definitely sharing this and using it in the future! I feel like a cake rockstar now, thanks!
