This was my first try with flavouring marshmallow fondant.  I stuck cocoa powder in the main layer and it really tasted nice, especially with the banana-vanilla cake underneath.  Will do again.







Thanks for looking.

Looks delicious. Was it hard? I've heard that making fondant is a mess and difficult, I've been wanting to make some marshmellow fondant but I never got around to it.

Making marshmallow fondant is so easy!  But it can be a mess.

 Basically, melt the marshmallows, then don't even TRY to knead the icing sugar in with your hands until you CANNOT mix in any more with a spoon.  Even then I don't go grabbing it, because it is so sticky.  I just turn it out of the bowl onto my counter that's covered in icing sugar, throw MORE icing sugar on top of the glob, and THEN start kneading with my hands.  The key is really to have a lot more icing sugar than you think you will need, because if ya ain't got enough, then ya aint using that fondant; it will remain a sticky pile of goo.

Other than that, GO DO IT!  It is so fun and people think you're much cleverer than you are Smiley
