Marshmallow Magic: Homemade Fondant Delight

Dive into the world of homemade fondant with a delightful twist – marshmallows! This easy-to-make alternative to traditional fondant adds a touch of sweetness and simplicity to your baking adventures. Here's a step-by-step guide to crafting fondant with marshmallows:


  • 16 oz mini marshmallows
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 2 lb powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the marshmallows and water in 30-second intervals until fully melted, stirring after each interval.
  2. Sift the powdered sugar into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the melted marshmallows to the powdered sugar and mix thoroughly. The mixture will be quite stiff.
  4. Coat your hands and work surface with vegetable shortening.
  5. Knead the fondant until it becomes smooth and pliable. Adjust the consistency by adding a little more water (1 teaspoon at a time) if too dry or more powdered sugar (1 tablespoon at a time) if too sticky.
  6. Once smooth, wrap the fondant tightly in plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 30 minutes before use.

This marshmallow-infused fondant is perfect for covering cakes, crafting decorations, and much more. With its easy customization through coloring and flavoring, it becomes a versatile choice for all your special occasions. Elevate your baking game with the magic of marshmallow fondant!
