A few weeks ago, when I was planning my cake for a school project, I wondered what the easiest way to make my cake look clean and professional without spending too much money on decorating supplies and tools.
I knew fondant was my best option to get the clean look I wanted, but this was something completely new to me. I had never tasted or worked with fondant before. And frankly, I was extremely intimidated.
I had always thought fondant was only for the professionals. This was not something I needed to be messing with, and had no need to learn. Wow…could I have been more wrong?! (Channeling my inner Chandler for any of you Friends fans out there!)
Well, I did a little research and found there is more than one way to make fondant. I chose the easy way.
This marshmallow fondant is very simple, fun, and inexpensive to make. It makes your cake look like it came straight from the display case of a professional bakery. And the best part is it is edible! It is not too pasty or gummy (as I’ve heard) other fondants can be.
Even though it is edible, it is extremely sweet and your teeth will probably hurt if you try to consume too much.
