I just wanted to share some of my recent discoveries with you. I am not sure if this is common knowlefge but it is sure news to me. I had a cake recently in which it needed to be vegetarian. I thought sure no problem. Well I guess a serious vegatarian wont eat gelatin. So I still thought no worries. Well come to find out there is gelatin in a marshmellow. So I had to either find vegatarian marshmellows( you can order them on line) or use marshmellow cream. Well it makes great fondant. You just need to make sure it sets up for at least a day. I found that it covers a cake crease free much easier then regular fondant. Though I also found it is much harder to mold and you need to put a hardener in it to make it workable, it just stays too soft.
Anyway thought I would share.

I thought marshmallow cream had eggs in it? My aunt's a vegetarian and won't eat eggs. Just my 2 cents.

The ingredients for Marshmallow Fluff are not on the website, but the online recipes for marshmallow creme that I looked at all have egg white in them.

Mostly vegans wont eat eggs. Most vegatarians will, that is a big differnce. A vegan will not eat any meat or meat by product. A vegatarian will eat things like eggs milk cheese. ETC.
I couldnt find the recipe on here. I thought it was here but I just made it with a large jar of marshmellow cream and about 3/4 of a 2lb bag of PS then 1 tsp flavor. I mixed it in the mixer with the blade and then when all the sugar and marshmellow were crumbled together I dumped it on the counter and kneaded till it came together and added more powdered sugar as nec. to get the right consitancy.
