I love your reproduction of their costumes (and I loved that program, too)!  Gorgeous cake, and those Smurf marshmallows are fantastic.

Thank you everyone! I'm glad you liked my cake and also for the nice comments about my friends' skating the other night!

The smurf marshmallows... I found them at one of the major supermarket chains here in Italy, they were from the Haribo brand.

The fondant done with marshmallows - I found the recipe on an Italian pastry board and looked pretty easy. I have the measurements in metrics only, but it was:
150g marshmallows, melted with 3 TBSP water, and then 330g of confectioner's sugar worked into them until you get a dough of a not too soft consistency. It has to rest wrapped in clingfilm (out of the fridge) for 24hrs befor ebeing usable, but then it's pretty easy to roll out!

Smurf themed food must be popular over in Europe.  Because when I was over in Germany in ''01, to visit my sister (she did a study abroad, we went over there for Christmas.  It was so much fun!), I remember having some Smurf gummies.  And now I want some again. *sigh*

Very cute!  I like the idea of the blue swirls being tracings and the yellow border being the skirtboard.  Very creative! A great way to spend the time waiting for them to come on (I now feel so lucky that I'm in the U.S.  The wait must have felt like forever!!!). 
I'd love to know what your friends thought about their likeness being made in fondant.

Haha, I've never seen smurf marshmallows before. The cake looks gorgeous! It's super smooth looking (I can never get my fondant like that!) and the skaters are adorable

Great cake (and great occasion for cake).

Your fondant looks great, you would never know it was made from the remains of hundreds of little smurfs  Grin
(the images remind me of when friends of mine made fondue out of chocolate easter bunnies)

I don't know if Smurfs are particularly popular in Italy, it's the first time I saw those marshmallows! They were huge when I was a kid but there's a bit of a nostalic retro feel going on so that might be an explanation... LOL!

I have yet to talk to my friends since the Olympics ended, but I am very curious as well to hear what they might say, LOL!!! I am pretty happy because it is my second decorated cake ever and it turned out quite fun, now I'm waiting for another occasion to make one!!!
