Marshmallow fondant is so easy to make and it doesn’t have milk or egg products so kids with those type of allergies can still have it, like my niece who is allergic to almost everything. This recipe is for red white and blue fondant, but you could use any colors.
I made this fondant to go with a Captain America themed cupcake topper I made for my nephews birthday party. You could also use this fondant for 4th of July, Presidents Day, Flag day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day…ok you get it, any patriotic day would work 🙂
Ingredients for each color (if using 3 colors x3)
1 C Marshmallow
1 C Powdered sugar
Food coloring Red and Blue
1. Heat 1 C of marshmallows in microwavable dish for approximately 1 minute or until they are melted
2. Stir in powdered sugar and food coloring until marshmallows becomes stiff and workable in hands without getting sticky. It feels like stiff play dough or clay.
3. On a powder sugared surface, roll the three colors into long strips about 2 inches wide. Place strips on top of each other and roll them up together like a jelly roll.
4. Cut a piece off the end of the roll and work in hands a bit, then roll it out flat and cut into any shape for decorating. To make it shiny you can use a steamer to “melt” the loose powdered sugar or I dipped my fingers in a bit of vegetable oil and rubbed it on top because I don’t have a steamer.
I hope you enjoy your patriotic fondant 🙂 Every Follow, Share, Like, Twitter, and Pin is appreciated by A Little Pinch of Perfect. Thanks for visiting!-Katie
