Yesterday I went over to a neighbors house to learn about making fondant. It was lots of fun and the above picture is what I created at the class. My 5 year old Chloe took the picture. Here is the recipe we got for making Marshmallow Fondant.

Marshmallow Fondant Recipe

16 oz bag marshmallows
3/4 of a 2 lb bag powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons water
Crisco (important to not use generic)

Combine marshmallows and water in large bowl. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave 10-30 seconds, stirring, until all marshmallows are melted, about 2 1/2 minutes. Pour sugar on top of melted marshmallows.

Cover counter top and hands with Crisco. Dump marshmallow sugar mixture onto the counter. Knead.

It will be a little sticky at first. After kneading for a couple of minutes, if it's tearing, add 1/2 Tablespoon water at a time until no longer tearing. If it seams too sticky, add a little more powdered sugar and knead it in.

When at desired consistency, roll into a ball and coat with Crisco. Wrap in plastic wrap. store in a zip lock bag in refrigerator.

It's best to let it rest overnight before using it. Add color right before using it because some colors will change the consistency of fondant.
