Some of you were asking for the fondant recipe I used for Dean’s cake, so I thought I’d share! The recipe I used was passed on to me from my friend Bri, who got it from Steph (you might remember the cake she made for Aletheia & Josiah’s wedding here). I think it makes enough fondant to cover a large cake? I didn’t keep track because I made so much…
1 10-oz bag marshmallows
3. Sift powdered sugar into marshmallows, and mix till it forms a dough. Add more or less powdered sugar depending on the consistency desired (don’t add too much, or it’ll dry it out, but it needs to be thick enough to knead like a dough). Knead on a surface lightly dusted in powdered sugar once it acquires a dough-like consistency. Add Crisco as desired to prevent hands from sticking to it or to soften it back up.
*I used Wilton gel food coloring that I got from Michaels. Apparently, the regular liquid food coloring changes the consistency of the fondant!
