CakeDays:  regular marshmallows worked fine for my batch.

post #17 of 29

Thanks MBalaska, the ones most readily available here are white mixed with pink or peach. It is a bit annoying having to source some ingredients out of the U.S :)

do they have regular sized marshmallows?

I know I can get the mini ones online from U.S.A Foods, but they are a bit pricey. Everywhere I looked had regular sized marshmallows, but they were a mixed flavour bag.

I did try to get my partner to bring some back with him, but I had already filled 1/3 of his luggage with my requests.

lol...can you get white food coloring there? I use it quite often when I want to get a bright white. You can also make homemade marshmallows! lol That would probably be more of a pain than it's worth.

I haven't looked if we can get white food colouring here, I'm sure you could because there are places who stock Americolor. That was actually one of my requests, a big bottle of Americolor Bright White. Which will be in my hands in about four hours :D 

Oh, if I went to the trouble of making marshmallows, I would be eating them straight away!

Congratulations !!!  And great work.  Like MBAlaska mentioned it is so much eaiser to use a stand mixer.  Please keep posting all your cake creations.

Thanks, Everyone! 

 

I'm about to get up from here and use that stand mixer method for my MMF!  Got to get that LSU cake covered!

It is easier too to use some vegetable shortening to grease the inside of your mixing bowl and dough hook. It makes it so much easier to clean.  Just start slow...LOL ! You don't want all the powder sugar flying every where when you start the mixer.

I have never made it in the mixer. I don't follow a recipe I just add sugar until it feels right to me. I think I will try it in the mixture next time...it would certainly be easier.....

Congratulations on your success!!!! I have never tried to make fondant because most that I know do not like it.  I hear that the marshmallow one tastes better than the regular fondant!!! I had no idea that fondant had that much sugar in it. Wow!!! Your cake looks really cute and you did a wonderful job on it!!!!

I did it!  I made MMF with my mixer!!!  I will NEVER do it the old fashion way again!!!!!  Had to go slow and my mixer got pretty hot, but I watched it and had to finish kneading and adding PS the old fashion way. But it was so much easier!!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you for the great tip!
