If you want to try your hand at making your own wedding cake or cupcakes for your bridal shower, this is a priceless guide for you. You can create your own fondant and it’s super easy – it takes just a few minutes. You can tint it whatever color you’d like and you only need 3 simple ingredients. Here’s how it’s done!
1 bag of marshmallows, whatever kind you want.
1 bag of powdered sugar
Food coloring gel
This batch will be enough to cover about 4 dozen cupcakes, or 1 large cake. You can make more or less depending upon what you need. First, place the marshmallows into a large microwave safe bowl. Add about a teaspoon of oil and microwave at 1 minute increments until the marshmallows are fully melted. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the powdered sugar.
This part of the process is the longest part. You simply have to keep mixing the powdered sugar in until you create a play-doh like consistency. Once you get to this point, dust a surface with powdered sugar and place your fondant there to work it. You can now use the gel food coloring several drops at a time to tint the fondant to the color you’d like.
If the fondant is too dry, add a few drops of oil until it’s malleable again. If it’s sticky, continue kneading in powdered sugar. Voila – your own fondant. You can use flavored marshmallows to create flavors, or you can replace the oil with a little flavored extract. It’s all up to you!
This is an absolutely delicious dessert that your guests will adore. It’s perfect for tucking in to your wedding favor bags and boxes and giving your guests an extra sweet treat. Plus, this is a fake out version so it’s super easy to create.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Box of Your Favorite Brownie Mix
1 Bag (8oz) Pecans
1 Bag (10 oz) Mini Marshmallows
1 Bag (16 oz) Powdered Sugar
½ Cup Butter
¼ Cup Milk
½ Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Step 1: The Brownies
First, you’ll mix up the brownies according to the package direction. Cook them in a greased cake pan until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Then, remove the brownies from the oven and cover the top with the mini marshmallows. Put the pan back into the oven for 5 minutes.
Step 2: The Frosting
Now, while the marshmallows are melting, you can make your frosting. Simply mix the powdered sugar, butter, milk and cocoa and mix with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. When it’s time to remove the pan from the oven again, pour your frosting on top of the marshmallows, covering them as much as possible.
Wait until the cake cools completely, and cut into small squares. If you’re giving 2 pieces to each guest, this is enough for approximately 9 to 10 guests and it’s absolutely delicious!
