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.

serves 2 sides of one cake
prep time 35 Min
method Microwave


  • 1 bag
    16 oz mini marshmallows
  • 3 Tbsp
  • 8 c
    powder sugar
  • food coloring
  • 1 tsp
    pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp
    almond extract

How To Make

  • 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

    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)

    Kneed the fondant and place into a plastic container until ready to use, can be stored up to 6 months.

    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!!!!!!!!
