I have learned this recipe from “Cupcake Addiction” and I highly recommend you give this a try. It is so simple to make and so much tastier than traditional fondant or store bought fondant. The resulted fondant is less flexible than my wedding cake fondant recipe. Recommend you use marshmallow version if you intend to eat the cake. Just decoration, you want to use traditional recipe.
- 400g (one package) of small marshmallow
- 1kg of icing sugar
- 3 tablespoon of water
- 2 tablespoon of shortening
Very short list of ingredients eh?
Sift the icing sugar and set aside.
Put the marshmallow in a huge microwave safe bowl, add all the water. Put in microwave in high for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until all the marshmallow are melted.
Then add in 3/4 of the icing sugar. Keep sprinkle icing sugar until rough dough is form. Then knead the fonddant dough until you can pull on fondant for 2 inches before breaking. (If you feel dough is getting sticky sprinkle more icing sugar. )
Finally cover the fondant with shortening and warp in two layers of plastic warp and put into big ziploc bag. Let the fondant rest overnight before rolling out for decoration.
