We recently celebrated one of my kid’s birthdays and I decided to try to up my baking game. I discovered that you can easily make fondant out of marshmallows which is pretty mind blowing for me. Fondant has always been one of those things that I’ve steered away from since you could only buy small packets of it at the store and making it from scratch was a fairly involved process. This marshmallow based recipe I have essentially only needs marshmallows, powdered sugar, and a microwave.
Working with fondant is a lot of fun. It is really just edible Play-Doh. I made these froggie cupcakes and I don’t think they are that bad for a first attempt. In hindsight, I’ve realized that working with a cake as opposed to cupcakes would have been easier. This is a case where bigger is simpler. I’m definitely going to be messing with fondant for the next birthday.
