I have always loved making cakes at home and rarely purchase a storebought cake. The one thing I have always hated on any cake is fondant. It tastes absolutely horrible and it’s just there for show, what a waste! With my homemade marshmallow fondant, you can actually eat and enjoy it with the cake!

Why is my marshmallow fondant flavorful and delicious? I like to add flavoring of course! I add in some vanilla and almond extract, the base is marshmallows, it’s sweet and delicious – everyone loves it! I typically do an all chocolate cake and when I make a chocolate cake I always make my best chocolate cake recipe, why is it the best? It’s a dump it all in the bowl and go type of recipe, my favorite!

What I love about the Marshmallow fondant was the ease of use and taste. It was pretty easy to work with and took color well. I had fun making little teddy bears and flowers on my cake. Marshmallow fondant is great for kids to make and decorate cakes with too! We like using our marshmallow fondant on cakes and cupcakes. It’s so versatile and can be flavored or colored however you desire.
If you want you can even use this marshmallow fondant recipe as a homemade edible playdough for kids if you have leftovers. It’s not great for storing so we recommend using and playing with it the day it’s made.
