So I'm sick of paying for fondant that doesn't even taste good. I decided I want to have a go at making it myself, I found a recipe that calls for icing sugar, anyone know what that is?

Also i was wondering who on here buys just white cake mix and adds the flavor themselves, I'm not sure if that is a dumb question. sorry.

I am thinking of buying the bulk white cake mix and just making my own flavors, not sure how much success I'll have at it.

I currently buy box cakes and doctor them a bit.

P.S. Icing sugar is powdered/confectioners sugar.

If I were you I would try making the marshmallow fondant. It's easy and very good, much better than store bought or regular fondant. It's a bag of mini marshmallows, water, extract and 10 X sugar. I use dough hooks on my mixer and it works out great. There is a recipe listed.
