This is a youtube video for "Way Beyond Cakes By Mayen".

She shows you how to make Marshmallow Fondant.
She also has other videos which show you how to decorate cakes with fondant.

Good Luck!

you can make marshmallow fondant but you will still have to use buttercream under the fondant to make it stick. What kind of frosting are you using? The canned is horrible for decorating cakes. looking in the recipe sections and you can find many different recipes for buttercream and fondant. HTH.

when I cover my cakes with fondant and put it in the freezer or refridge. why is the fondant always glossy and it makes it difficult to airbrush or paint. how do i keep it dry, please help!

u have to let the condensation dry off first. It will just give it time.. To really speed it up..put your cake in front of a fan. It's like taking a cold can of soda out of the fridge and setting it on your's going to sweat with the difference in temperature..just let it dry out and try not to touch it so you won't leave fingerprints
