Time 1h10m

Yield 1 Cake

Number Of Ingredients 4

Ingredients:

  • 16 ounces white mini marshmallows (use a good quality brand)
  • 2 -5 tablespoons water
  • 2 lbs icing sugar (please use C&H Cane Powdered Sugar for the best results)
  • 1/2 cup Crisco shortening (you will be digging into it so place in a very easily accessed bowl)

Steps:

  • Melt marshmallows and 2 tablespoons of water in a microwave or double boiler: Put the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, open microwave and stir, back in microwave for 30 seconds more, open microwave and stir again, and continue doing this until melted.
  • It usually takes about 2 ½ minutes total. Place 3/4 of the powdered sugar on the top of the melted marshmallow mix.
  • Now grease your hands GENEROUSLY - palms, backs and in between fingers, then heavily grease the counter you will be using and dump the bowl of marshmallow/sugar mixture in the middle.
  • Start kneading like you would bread dough. You will immediately see why you have greased your hands.
  • Keep kneading, this stuff is sticky at this stage! Add the rest of the powdered sugar and knead some more.
  • Re-grease your hands and counter when the fondant is sticking. If the mix is tearing easily, it is to dry, so add water (about ½ tablespoon at a time then knead it in). It usually takes me about 8 minutes to get a firm smooth elastic ball so that it will stretch without tearing when you apply it to the cake.
  • Its best if you can let it sit, double wrapped, overnight (but you can use it right away if there are no tiny bits of dry powdered sugar). If you do see them, you will need to knead and maybe add a few more drops of water.
  • Prepare the fondant for storing by coating it with a good layer of Crisco shortening, wrap in a plastic- type wrap product and then put it in a re-sealable or Ziploc bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible.
  • MM Fondant will hold very well in the refrigerator for weeks. If I know that I have a cake to decorate, I usually make 2 batches on a free night during the week so it is ready when I need it. Take advantage of the fact that this fondant can be prepared well in advance.

  • Add the marshmallows to a microwave safe bowl. Sprinkle the water over the top. Microwave for 30 seconds on high, stir, then microwave for 30 more seconds, or until the marshmallows are completely melted. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Add half of the powdered sugar, and stir to combine using a sturdy spoon. It will be very sticky and may be difficult to stir, but keep at it! Add additional powdered sugar to make a dough that has the consistency of play dough. You may need to knead it with your hands to make it smooth.
  • To color the fondant, add a few drops of gel food coloring into a ball of fondant, and knead the food coloring into the fondant until evenly distributed. Wear gloves to prevent transferring the food color to your skin, and add additional powdered sugar if the fondant gets sticky.

  • Place the marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on High for 30 seconds to 1 minute to start melting the marshmallows. Carefully stir the water and vanilla extract into the hot marshmallows, and stir until the mixture is smooth. Slowly beat in the confectioners' sugar, a cup at a time, until you have a sticky dough. Reserve 1 cup of powdered sugar for kneading. The dough will be very stiff.
  • Rub your hands thoroughly with butter, and begin kneading the sticky dough. As you knead, the dough will become workable and pliable. Turn the dough out onto a working surface dusted with confectioners' sugar and continue kneading until the fondant is smooth and no longer sticky to the touch, 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Form the fondant into a ball, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. To use, allow the fondant to come to room temperature, and roll it out onto a flat surface dusted with confectioners' sugar.
