This is your basic no frills marshmallow fondant.
Although it is simple, if you have never worked with fondant, you need to make it a few times until you get the consistency that you like to work with. That is what I did. I just added or subtracted the amount of powdered sugar until it worked for me. So what works best for me, might not be exactly how you like it. So start with the basic and then do it your way.
16 oz mini-marshmallows (Kraft)
2 lb powdered sugar
3 tbsp water
1 tsp lemon, vanilla or any flavored extract (optional)
Gel food coloring (optional)
*Grease your spoon before this next step
*Before adding the powdered sugar this is a good time to add flavor and color if you want
You did it! You now made your own fondant and saved yourself a lot of money.
*Fondant holds well in the refrigerator for weeks
Let me know if you have any questions.
Here is my very first fondant cake and I can promise you it was beginners luck, because it has never been as easy since. LOL!
