Fondant is sugary dough that is rolled out and placed over a lightly frosted cake. A lot of people like the look of a fondant cakes because the cake will be clean & smooth. There are a lot of decorating options when using fondant because it is very easily shaped into almost anything! We decided to use Marshmallow Fondant because neither of us like the taste of the plain (and pre-made.) We found a recipe for marshmallow fondant and, although it sounded messy, we gave it a try!
The next day we frosted our cakes with a thin layer of icing and put them in the fridge to harden. Then, we rolled our our base fondant color. Although the fondant was easy to work with, we found out that you can't roll it too thin or it's difficult to work with!
As we hoped, the fondant is super yummy! We used cookie cutters to create different designs for the cakes/cupcakes.
