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

  • 1In 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
  • 2Once 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
  • 3once 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)
  • 4Kneed the fondant and place into a plastic container until ready to use, can be stored up to 6 months.
  • 5When 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!!!!!!!!
  • 6and decorate how ever you like, there are tools and you can use to make designs and shapes.
