Look! Homemade Marshmallow Fondant

Our experiences with fondant have been limited and rather disappointing. Yes, you can use fondant to create beautiful designs on cakes, cookies, and cupcakes — but it's tricky to work with and not very nice to eat.

But this homemade marshmallow fondant at Clockwork Lemon is supposed to actually be easier to work with, and tasty too! And it's homemade!

Marshmallow fondant is made by melting mini marshmallows with a little bit of water, then mixing in lots and lots of powdered sugar. You can add gel colorings, and also flavored oils if you like. It's supposed to be easier to work with and also much yummier than the storebought stuff.

Have you ever made marshmallow fondant? What have been your experiences?
