Why else would I decide to make fondant, instead of buy it?? But I think I know why: Most people don't like fondant. It seems that it's considered a necessary evil, of sorts. especially with celebration cakes.
Products like Satin Ice exist and are said to taste good, if you can get your hands on them. So instead of being stuck with the not-nice fondant, I attempted to make my own.
Anyway, here's my attempt:
|melted the marshmallows (in the microwave)|
|mixed in the confectioner's sugar till I couldn't stir it any more|
|began to knead it (at this point, it decided to split into 2 balls and I couldn't figure out why|
|coloured the fondant by adding little bits of the gel colour and kneading till it was a uniform colour|
|now my fun began: rolled it up and cut it into heart shapes, using a biscuit cutter|
|red velvet cupcake, with buttercream icing topped with a big ol heart|
|fooling around with marshmallows|
