1.Marshmallows - 1 packet
2.Powdered Sugar - 2 cups
3.Microwave safe bowl
5.1 tsp water
6.Crisco or margerine
1. Before starting the process, clean the kitchen board surface and grease it with crisco and dust with powder sugar.
2.I used only pink colour Marshmallows from the packet, put it in the deep microwave safe bowl ( cos it will raise while in microwave so use deep bowl) and sprinkle just a little bit ( 1 tsp) of water and microwave it to 20 secs and take it out mix it well with spatula and again microwave it for 20 secs and take it out mix it well with spatula, do the same process to 2mts.
3.After 2 mts of microwaving the MM ( marshmallow), pour the mixture in the greased n sugar dusted surface.
4.Now grease your hands with crisco or with oil and sugar, try to incorporate the MM like our soft roti dough.
5.It's bit messy work for 10 mts and then the beautiful fondant will come to use.
6.After this wrap the fondant in plastic shrink wraper and put it inside the fridge.
7.For me after taking out the fondant from the fridge while using it turned bit hard, i couldn't roll it so i just microwave the fondant placed in the plate for 10 secs and checked if not came out right again i put it for 10 secs to make it flexible.
8.I tried the MM fondant cake and covered the fondant to the cake with the help of videos from here.
