El mejor fondant es bien facil y economico

Marshmallow Fondant (MMF)

16 oz white marshmallows
2 tb water
2 lb icing sugar (approx. 8 cups confectioners' or powdered sugar)

1. Melt marshmallows and water in a double boiler or microwave.
Heat until melted.
2. Place half of the sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the middle.
Pour melted marshmallow in and mix.
3. Add remaining sugar and continue kneading. (add more powedered sugar in tablespoons as you are kneading. Micture should not be sticky)

---grease your hands and the bowl.
Also, let this stuff rest overnight.
It will be pretty stiff when you try to knead it again, but it can be microwaved for five to ten seconds (start off with 5) and it will soften right up and be perfect for rolling out and playing with.
---Discard all the crusty residues.

if fondant is too hard, place about 30 sec. in microwave. Dust work table with cornstarch, and knead for a couple of minutes.
Then roll as thin as you want with rolling pin dusted in cornstarch. To avoid it from stickin to your work surface, turn rolled dough frequently, and continue dusting with cornstarch until you have reached desired thinnes.
To color: Separate small amounts of fondant & color with paste food colours to the desired tone. Knead until colour is smooth and completely uniform.
This fondant does not set fast at all. When you have formed your flowers, set them on a curved surface so they don't loose their shape (hang them upside down) It will not be as perfect as Gum Paste, but it will work. Also, start making flowers at least two days in advance to allow them to set. Additions add 2oz melted vanilla candy melts.

Agrego que a esa receta de 'F de Marshmallow", q te aporta Angelyz, le va de maravilla el sabor del extracto de banana o de almendras. (preferible el de bananas, q de paso nada q ver con que le imparta sabor a banana, mas bien termina con un sabor agradable a "tuti-fruti"..

johanna, a mi realmente me gusta el de Wilton pero hechandole Almond Extract para mejorar el sabor.

El truquito es de no ponerlo muy grueso cuando cubres el bizcocho.

Rolled Fondant Recipe
1 Tablespoon unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup Glucose
1 Tablespoon Glycerin
2 Tablespoons solid vegetable shortening
2 lbs. sifted confectioners' sugar
Color and flavor as desired.

Combine gelatin and cold water; let stand until thick. Place gelatin mixture in top of double boiler and heat until dissolved. Add glucose and glycerin, mix well. Stir in shortening and just before completely melted, remove from heat, add flavoring and color. Mixture should cool until lukewarm. Next, place 1 lb. confectioners' sugar in a bowl and make a well. Pour the lukewarm gelatin mixture into the well and stir with a wooden spoon, mixing in sugar and adding more, a little at a time, until stickiness disappears. Knead in remaining sugar. Knead until the fondant is smooth, pliable and does not stick to your hands. If fondant is too soft, add more sugar; if too stiff, add water (a drop at a time). Use fondant immediately or store in airtight container in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate or freeze. When ready to use, bring to room temperature and knead again until soft. This recipe yields enough to cover a 10 x 4 in. high cake.
