I sincerely want to thank everyone on this site for their help and inspiration! I just made my first batch of Marshmallow Fondant (MMF) and I'm in love. I'll never go back to Wilton fondant. I just wish I'd done it years ago. It tastes better, is much more economical, and isn't any harder to whip up than a batch of Rice Krispy bars. If it weren't for my addiction to this website, I wouldn't have even known that you could make your own fondant!

Thanks for helping me grow in my artistry as a cake decorator. I appreciate each of you!

I have always wanted to try making my own but I have been afraid it would taste as bad as the wilton brand so I was afraid of wasting the money.I am glad you have posted this, it gives me more courage to try it on my own!I have however lost my recipe,I assume you found it on this site.I have just recently discovered this site and have yet to explore everything but so far I love it! icon_biggrin.gif

This is the recipe I used. Some of the others looked really delic, but this one looked the easiest, so now you all know how lazy I am!

That's basically the same recipe I use. I substitute the extract of my choice for some of the water.
