My family and all our friends are vegetarian, so I can't use Marshmallow or gelatine in my fondant. Can anyone please share any alternative recipe for rolled fondant? Thanks in advance.
SatinIce is actually vegan.
That's nice to know, I never knew there was vegan fondant. So there's no gelatin in Satin Ice?
you can try to make MMF with vegan marshmellows/rice marshmallow creme or you could try rolled buttercream, http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Rolled-Buttercream-Fondant/Detail.aspx

Umm . . .of course not. If there was gelatin in it it woudn't be vegetarian or vegan.
Thank you for your replies! It helped me a lot.
I am admittedly ignorant about vegan and vegetarian diets. What is in gelatin and marshmallows that makes them not vegetarian? Just curious.
Gelatin is made from animal hooves...
Gelatin is a protein produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the bones, connective tissues, organs, and some intestines of animals such as the domesticated cattle, and horses. On a commercial scale, gelatin is made from by-products of the meat and leather industry, mainly pork skins, pork and cattle bones, or split cattle hides.
Marshmallows, JellO all contain gelatin. So, not suitable for a Vegetarian or Vegan diet.
Oh, geez....now THAT's appetizing!
...and I'm a carnivore!
kosher marshmallows are also vegetarian
I was reading up online and Kosher marshmallows have fish bones in it instead of pork. Us being Hindu vegetarians (from India) don't consume fish or any products derived from fish.
Thanks for replying though!
sorry bout that. thanks for educating me!!
Thanks a bunch again for reading my post and replying.
I have been looking for this!!!! Thank you. See by asking questions we can all get something out of it. I am doing a little cake tomorrow for a friend and wanted to do fondant, but she is a veggie. Yeah...I can do fondant. I even went to a veggie website and learned more than I EVER wanted to know about gelatin. (Including that bit about kosher marshmallows)
