I've made this for all my boys birthday cakes, once you start kneading the dough you'll know when it feels right.

Prep:
1 Hr 15 Min
Method:
Microwave

Ingredients

1/4 c
butter
16 oz
mini marshmallows
4 Tbsp
water
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 lb
icing sugar, sifted and divided

Step-By-Step

1Place the butter in a shallow bowl and set aside.
2Place the marshmallows in a large microwaveable bowl, microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds to 1 minutemail to start melting the marshmallows, and stir until the mixture is smooth. Slowly beat in the icing sugar, a cup at time, until you have a sticky dough. Reserve 1 cup of sugar for kneading. The dough will be very stiff.
3Rub your hands thoroughly with the butter and begin kneading get the sticky dough. As you knead, the dough will become workable and pliable.
4Turn the dough out onto a working surface dusted with icing sugar and continue kneading until the fondant is smooth and no longer sticky to the touch, 5-10 minutes. Form the fondant into a ball, wrap tightly in plastic and refrigerate overnight.
5To use, allow fondant to comel to room temperature, and roll it out onto a flat surface dusted with icing sugar.
