I have a question. I have seen alot of people making homemade marshmallow fondant directly on their table or counter. I was wondering does someone have another idea to lay the ingreidients down on? I mean I don't want grease all over my table or counter. Any ideas will help!! thanks
I use a silicone mat. The one I have is pretty large, 24 x 36 inches, so you can easily lay it on a counter or table. I love it! I ordered mine, but I think you can find silicone mats at places like Bed, Bath, & Beyond or a good cooking supply store should carry them.
I knead mine on a silicone mat
Ditto on the silicone mat! I have 4! From large to extra small. LOVE THEM ALL!

I kneaded mine on a cookie sheet with sides with hopes that it would also keep the powdered sugar tornado from getting everywhere! It worked ok, but didn't really keep the powdered sugar mess down.
Hey thanks you guys!! Never thought of that!!
I buy vinyl from Wal-Mart that is used for tablecloths. I use that on my counter for mixing fondant, rolling out fondant, etc. Very cheap.
I have a huge stainless steel bowl that I can mix it all in until it's a very kneadable consistency, then I knead in the rest of the sugar on 20 gauge vinyl from joann's (50% off coupon rocks!) and nothing sticks to that thing. It ends up costing me 4 bucks for the yard of it with the coupon. I roll everything out on it too.
Hey that sounds a lot cheaper than the silicone mat. I'll check into that!! Thanks
