Marshmallow Fondant

Click the links below for related posts:

Wasn't able to find white marshmallows, hence my fondant was greenish...

Yield: Enough to cover and design 2 tiers of cake (6-inch and 3 1/2-inch)

Ingredients:
250 g white marshmallows
2 T water
450 - 600 g powdered sugar (more or less)
shortening for greasing

Procedure:
  • Put the marshmallows and water in a microwave safe bowl; use a bowl that is about twice as big as the quantity of the marshmallows because the marshmallows expands when put on the microwave.
  • Heat the marshmallows in the microwave for about 2 minutes. It's melted enough when the marshmallows puffs up. (It won't come out the microwave as a liquid mass.) Stir the marshmallows with a well greased (shortening) spoon until there are no signs of lumpy marshmallows.
  • Mix in the powdered sugar. Stir until it looks like a dough. Add more powdered sugar if needed.
  • Transfer the dough into a well greased work board, and knead with your hands (make sure it's well greased too).
  • Slowly add more powdered sugar as you knead until the fondant is no longer sticky. Just be careful not to add too much as the fondant would be too dry. As long as the fondant is pliable then that's enough.
  • Knead in your desired colour and it's ready to use!
Bon app├ętit,

  2. Hi Macella, I haven't tried using a double boiler before but i don't see why you can't use that method instead of a microwave. Just make sure you coat all your mixing bowls and spatulas with shortening because the marshmallows are really sticky once melted. I would imagine it would be ok melting them in direct heat as well. Good luck with your marshmallow fondant! let me know how it goes :)
