I always made fun of fondant, how it looked, tasted, it just didn't look good. Until my beautiful daughter turned one and I had to have a Cinderella party and of course, every little princess needs a pillow cake with a glass slipper on top. The problem was, the pillow cake would not look as nice without fondant. So I googled and found a home made fondant recipe that was easy and half way tasteful. I gave it a shot, and it turned out beautiful.

How to Make Homemade Fondant

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large glass bowl add marshmallows,water,almond extract,vanilla. Microwave for about a minute,I do it 30 seconds at a time to not over do it or your fondant will become too stiff.

    Cover your paddle on your electric with Crisco
  2. Once melted smooth, pour over powder sugar in a mixing bowl and add your food coloring, *i use an electric mixer

    mix on medium speed, until fondant forms
  3. once the fondant can no longer mix in the mixer, remove from the bowl onto a powdered sugar counter top ( you will need to grease your hands with Crisco to get everything out of the bowl)
  4. Kneed the fondant and place into a plastic container until ready to use, can be stored up to 6 months.
  5. When you are ready to roll out your fondant, place corn starch on a rubber mat, and roll out your fondant to the size of your cake or cupcakes. cut away the excess and that can be used again as well. Enjoy!!!!!!!!
  6. and decorate how ever you like, there are tools and you can use to make designs and shapes.
