Hello! I'm new to the forums, but stumbled upon this site and it looks like it would be great for questions and such :)
I am always making funky treats for my daughter, and for my students as well. I don't get TOO involved though. But my daughter requested for me to make her a funky cake and I found out what I want to do.
I have never made marshmallow fondant though, can someone give me tips/pointers for it?
Do I need to wear gloves so the gel dye doesn't dye my hands and nails?
The recipe I found was:
200g of small marshmallows
2 1/2 cups icing sugar (that's powdered sugar, correct?)
1 tablespoon water
Gel food coloring
Vegetable shortening (most is for greasing the surface, but it does say to add a teaspoon to keep the fondant from drying out)
Is this a good one, and will it make the fondant yummy?
Basically, I'm creating a cake similar to this:
The inside will be my tie-dye white cake I always make. I was going to use cream cheese frosting instead of buttercream to attach the fondant... is that one okay?
I'm really excited to make this for my daughter for her party... she is SO excited too!
Her party is Saturday... when should I start preparing the cake, fondant, fondant pieces, etc...
Thanks in advance everyone!
