Of course I don't want my customers to experience the same thing from me. Neither do I want them to experience store bought fondant from the big brands. No matter how expensive & branded it is - it tastes ridiculous. So i went ahead and discovered the other kind, the marshmallow fondant (cheering). I was so overly excited by the outcome that my enthusiasm started to make me feel exhausted. I couldn't express in words how tasty and creamy marshmallow fondant could be - so i stood there in front of my mum & made distorted expressions with my mouth, nose, eyes and brows to convey the message.
Its the same amount of over sweetness like the common kind, BUT it doesn't just taste like plastic in disguised as sugar. It tastes like the real thing - MARSHMALLOWS! It may not seem like a big deal, but going from nothing to something is always great. You would rather chew on marshmallow than plain sugar, right? Right? YES. So I'm going to share this recipe, its brilliant & easy! Find the recipe at the end of this post & those who attempt it, thank me later (...with promotions hehe).
Homemade marshmallow fondant
What you will need:
3 tbsp of Glucose/corn syrup
3 tbsp of Unsalted butter
3 tbsp of water
1/2 tsp of Vanilla extract
450 gm of Marshmallow
900gm of Icing sugar
What to do:
1. In a microwavable bowl, add all the ingredients except icing sugar (corn syrup, butter, water, vanilla and marshmallows).
2. Heat the bowl in the microwave for 1 minute and 20 seconds. After taking it out, stir it thoroughly and let it cool for 5 minutes (don't exceed more than 10 minutes or it will harden).
3. In a bigger bowl, combine the above melted ingredients with 500 gm of icing sugar. The combination will form a pasty dough.
4. With the rest 400 gm of the icing sugar, find a clean surface where you can knead your fondant. I use my kitchen bench top. Place the rest of the icing sugar on the surface and on top of that your half ready fondant. You will need to knead the remaining icing sugar in and you will see your fondant starting to form into a soft dough consistency. If you see the fondant is sticking to your hands too much add more sugar. You will know when your fondant is ready when it is a litter softer than play-dough consistency hehe & by holding it with the tip of your fingers you will be able to see it stretch slowly (not too quickly, meaning it needs to thicken).
Store it in an airtight container or bag in room temperature for up to 6 months & enjoy!
