Key west, two questions:

1) Where did you get your fondant

and

2) How difficult was it for you to roll out?

I helped my friend with her wedding cake a month ago (ides of march, actually) and I actually had bruises on my hands from trying to get it rolled out.  Does this make me a pansy?  Cry Undecided

I made the fondant (Marshmallow Fondant!). I used http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm and it was pretty easy.

As for ease of use, I found that it was easier to use after heating it for a few seconds in the micro. And using cornstarch instead of the crisco'd counter made it much less likely to stick in the roll-it-out portion of our show. Also helping was the non-stick rolling pin (I picked it up for less than $4 at the Wal).

I don't think it makes you a pansy at all! I tried no less than 10 times to get it rolled consistently. And there's flaws, of course, but I did not photograph them. Smiley And the flaws made it easier to eat without feeling like it was being wrecked!

This is SO AWESOME!!!!!
I kept hoping I would see the Poopsmith (he took a vow of silence, you know) and then I thought, maybe it's better if the Poopsmith is not on your cake.  With his job, well, you know...
I bow down to the master.
AMAZING.  And fun.

This is exactly why the Poopsmith was not on there. Because if I had to do him, there'd be a required pooppile, and well, we're not going there... Wink

OMG! sweeeeet.  I wish we'd had this recipe beforehand, lol ^.^ I didn't have so many problems with the fondant sticking as I did with the fondant just being plain tough to roll out.  For days I couldn't grip my steering wheel without cringing, bleh!  We had picked it up at Michael's and it was a steal in comparison to purchasing marzipan! 

Again, great job on the cake and thank you so much for sharing! =]

That's AWESOME! I love HSR. You did a wonderful job, and it's fantastic, considering this is your first time in fondant. Did you make the fondant yourself (and if so, did you use the marshmallow recipe or something else)? (I read later that you used the marshmallow fondant. That stuff tastes waaaaay better than the regular fondant, but mine got really sticky and kinda condensationy after 3 days. Anyways, those flavors sound delicious!
