this is a almost mess free, easy way to make fantastic tasting home made marshmallow fondant. i have had tons of great reviews on this fondant.
im sure you could flavor with other flavorings but im just not sure how much you would need. this brand is the only flavoring i use for buttered vanilla.
Amount Ingredient 16 oz mini marshmallows 2 lb sifted confectioners sugar 3 TBSP water 1 TBSP magic line brand buttered vanilla flavoring
grease EVERYTHING that will touch the marshmallows,
grease a glass bowl, put marshmallows water and flavoring in it. microwave for 1 minute stir and microwave 30 seconds if not melted repeat every 30 seconds. be sure to grease your spoon too. i use a metal spoon.
then grease another glass mixing bowl. put it in the kitchen sink so splattered sugar can just be washed down the drain. put half the powdered sugar in it. and make a bowl out of the powdered sugar in the bowl.
pour the marshmallow mix into the bowl. stir with spoon until most of the marshmallow and sugar are mixed. pour 1/4 of the remaining powdered sugar in and continue stiring
at this point its getting stiff so i start using my hands. be sure to grease your hands very well.
i pour the remaining powdered sugar and work it in.
the fondant is done when it is no longer sticky when you pull at it while your working with it.
wrap in cling wrap and let sit for an hour atleast.
work it one more time before you start rolling it to make sure there are no powdered sugar clumps.
the flavoring is the secret to this. i have had rave reviews on my fondant
