  • My husband makes a great fondant -- I think he found the recipe at But I can hardly blame your family. Most commercially made fondant has a bitter flavor.

  • Try making Marshmallow Fondant:
    1/4 cup or less of crisco
    16 oz mini marshmallows (Kraft)
    1 tsp clear vanilla
    1 tsp butter flavor (extract)
    2 tbsp water
    2lb bag of powdered sugar (sifted)
    1. Grease inside of microwafeable safe bowl with Crisco.
    2. Put marshmallows, flavorings, and water into bowl.
    3. Microwave on high for 60 seconds. If not completely melted, stir and microwave at 30 sec intervals.
    4. Put powdered sugar into large mixer bowl. (Fit stand mixer with dough hook) I use a wooden spoon. I don't like how my kitchen aide mixer does.
    5. Mix until well incorporated.
    6. Prepare work surface with sifted powdered sugar.
    7. Turn fondant out onto work surface. Knead fondant into loaf. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap for at least 1 hour before using.
    8. To store fondant: Wrap in plastic wrap, and then put into resealable plastic bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible. Fondant will keep very well in frid
