If you use to surf on the Internet food blogs and forums, you will maybe know how to make Marshmallow Fondant (MMF). Marshmallow Fondant is a malleable dough made by combining melted marshmallows and icing sugar. It is used to cover cakes and cupcakes, or to make sculptures to decorate them.
You can use Marshmallow Fondant to completely cover a cake surface, or else to make beautiful decorations, such as flowers, small animals, and more.
All the recipes I’ve found on the Internet are basically equal, and the same is for the procedure. So, here you have my experiment, to help you if you haven’t ever made it before.
food coloring agents
Preparation Time: 30 min
Total Time: 30 min + 24 hours for resting
Let melt your marshmallow in bain-marie, together with 3 tablespoons of water.
As soon as irt’s completely melted (about 10 minutes), take away from the heat.
With the mixture still hot, add 125 gr of icing sugar.
Combine with a wooden spoon till all the sugar has been absorbed.
Then sprinkle some icing sugar on a clean surface and pour the mixture over it.
Cover your marshmallow with some more icing sugar.
Sprinkle your hands with icing sugar as well, and start kneading, slowly adding the remaining sugar as soon as it is absorbed.
Once Marshmallow Fondant has absorbed all the sugar, make a ball, cover with some plastic wrap, and place it in a dry place to rest.
After 24 hours, your Marshmallow Fondant will have hardened. Take it back, divide into smaller balls, and color it with paste food coloring. It will softened as you knead it with coloring agents, so keep sprinkling your hands with icing sugar.
And here you have your colored Marshmallow Fondant.
Once colored, you can use Marshmallow Fondant to cover a cake (you need to cover it with something, like whipped cream, jam, butter cream… before that), or to create decorations.
In order to mount your decorations or to stick them onto your cake, just brush them with some water.
You can cover your Marshmallow Fondant with some plastic wrap and store it up to 2 months. You can make your Marshmallow Fondant decorations in advance and store them into a tin box.
Do you want to know what have I done with my Marshmallow Fondant? Ahahah, that was an experience… I’ll tell you later 😉
