AIf you spray your gloves with nonstick spray it will help some. You need to keep adding powdered sugar and mixing until it comes together. It is messy but it states better to most. Just keep at it. It will work. HTH

Wipe your kitchen counter clean and disinfect it.  Then pour out a 2lb package of powdered sugar on the counter an put the sticky fondant in the center of it.  Keep kneading - incorporating more and more confectioners sugar until the stickiness is gone.

The one on the back of the Rice Krispie's box - just eliminate the butter or margarine.

this is the one I tried its by Elizabeth labau on the website about candy ~~•8 ounces miniature marshmallows (4 cups not packed, or half of a 16-ounce bag) •1 pound powdered sugar (4 cups), plus extra for dusting •2 tbsp water •Food coloring or flavored extracts, optional.. also I did the counter top I think I what happen is I didn't add enough powdered sugar on the counter to keep from sticking

My recipe is one 2 pound. bag of powdered sugar (may need more or less depending on where you live.  One 16 oz. bag of Kraft Mini Marshmallows, one half cup of melted wedding white Merkings chocolate nibs, 1/4 tsp, cotton candy LorAnn flavoring oil, a splash of water................and if you want the fondant extra white, add some Wilton Whitener and the end of a toothpick full of violet gel food coloring - just the smallest amount will take the off white curse off of the fondant.  More than a whisp and you'll end up with gray fondant.  :-(

I figured it works in buttercream icing, why not in fondant.  :-)

ASearch this site for marshmallow fondant and you will get tons of results. Good luck. Love using it now that I've practiced some with it.

It's easier to let the KA do the work for you.

I love my KA! MBalska, would I just use the dough hook like when I use it to knead bread? I would like to try making some as well to go on top of cookies, since my RI flooding is super horrible right now.
