Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate
This tutorial demonstrates how to make inexpensive homemade fondant out of marshmallows and powdered sugar.
I recommend that marshmallow fondant (MMF) NOT be your first experience using fondant. Fondant is a lovely, versatile substance, kind of like sugar playdough. With traditional fondant, you knead it prior to use. The kneading action loosens the fibers and the fondant becomes soft and pliable. You should know what real fondant feels like, and how it is supposed to behave, before you experiment with MMF.
