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!

You’ll Need:

1 bag of marshmallows, whatever kind you want.

Vegetable oil

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!
