I just made a batch of marshmallow fondant using a recipe that called for 8 oz marshmallows, 2 tbs water, 4 cups powdered sugar.
I kind of got distracted while making it and forgot to add in the water to the bowl of marshmallows during the microwaving process. It was only after I added the color, made the ball of fondant and wrapped it up in plastic wrap that I realized I had forgotten to add the water.
Right now, as the fondant sits, I don't see anything wrong with it per se, but it was only my first time making fondan so I am not sure if it will have any effect. I will be using the fondant in about 2-3 weeks time.
Can anyone tell me if adding water to the marshmallows when melting the marshmallows is really necessary to make a good batch of fondant?
I should also mention that I will be combining this homemade fondant with a batch of premade store bought fondant I had bought a few weeks ago. Would this change anything?
