Fondant isn’t just for pastry chefs anymore. You
can easily achieve impressive cakes and decorations by taking a little time and
making marshmallow fondant. Marshmallow fondant is much simpler to make than
traditional fondant, and tastes so good you won’t need to peel it off before
eating the cake. Here’s our recipe for Marshmallow Fondant.
Once you’ve made the base recipe, the rest is up
to your creativity! Birthdays, parties, anniversaries and school bake-sales are
just some of the events that can spark your imagination. Once you’ve mixed
together the basic fondant recipe, you can use food coloring to tint the white
fondant any color. It’s a good idea to use gloves during the tinting process
because you need to work the coloring in with your hands.
Here are some ideas for using fondant:
Roll the fondant 3/16-inch thick in the general shape of your cake if you want to cover a frosted layer cake.
Cut fondant using cookie cutters for toppers or letters. Layer shapes on top of each other to make other designs like the fish and flower cupcakes below.
Shape fondant free-hand, like clay, to create custom shapes.
Fondant is the perfect way to create bakery-worthy cakes and cupcakes in your own kitchen! What have you made with Marshmallow Fondant. We’d love to hear from you!
