Marshmallow Fondant Recipe

A lot of people have asked me for my marshmallow fondant recipe.  Below you will find it.  It is definitely yummier than any of the store bought ones and though a little harder to work with (especially on big cakes) I use this recipe all the time.  Try it out!


64 large marshmallows - I use No Name Brand
2 tsp Vanilla
3 tbs Water
1 Kg Icing Sugar


1.  Take a microwavable bowl large enough to hold 64 large marshmallows.  Coat it with shortening.

2.   Coast your mixer with shortening as well.  Place about 2/4 of the icing sugar into the mixing bowl

3.  Place 64 marshmallows into the microwavable bowl.  Add vanilla and water.

4.  Place bowl into microwave at high, for 1 minute.  Take it out and take a look.  If the marshmallows are all melted, it is done.  If it is not, melt it for 10 second intervals.  Be careful.

5.  Take the hot bowl of marshmallows and pour it onto the mixer bowl using a spatula coated in shortening

6.  Using a kneading hook begin to mix at "Stir" mode.  As it begins to mix, add icing sugar

7.  Keep kneading until a ball of fondant forms.

8.  Take it out (make sure your hands have been coated with shortening) and wrap it with seran wrap.  Put it in a large ziploc bag and into an airtight container.

Ideally, let the fondant sit for 24 hrs before using.
