CakeBoss Marshmallow Fondant Recipe and Tutorial

CakeBoss Marshmallow Fondant Recipe and Tutorial

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.

This recipe makes 3 lbs of MMF, and costs me about $3.50 to make. This is highly economical, especially compared to the cost of pre-made fondant!

I actually prefer to use pre-made fondant like Satin Ice or Albert Uster's Massa Grischuna. But MMF is a great "in a pinch" alternative, if you're out of fondant and don't have time to order any more, or you're covering dummy cakes and don't want to spend a small fortune on pre-made fondant.

Store your MMF by wrapping as airtight as possible (double-bagged in ziploc bags works well). It will keep for a month or so. Just pop it in the microwave for 5-second increments and use your hands covered with shortening to make it soft and workable again. You'll know when the MMF is no longer "good". It will be hard as a rock and will not soften up in the microwave. Then it's time to toss it and make some more!

I've had great success using MMF for bow toppers, check out the Fondant Bow Tutorial!
