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 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.

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.
