I take it out of the bowl when it gets to the point where most of the sugar is incorporated and I knead it in my hands. This takes roughly about 5-7 minutes.
Take a fondant roller or a regular rolling pin and roll out. After I roll a few times, I lift the fondant slightly and rotate it. I keep rotating it quarter turns while rolling so it doesn't get stuck to the surface I'm rolling on.
Oh, if you are going to colour the fondant, put the food colouring in when the marshmallow mix is soupy and stir. It will be much easier to colour it this way. Or, if you need different colours, then yeah, knead it and separate it later and colour it then. It will take longer to colour it, but it works. Don't forget to keep checking to make sure the fondant doesn't stick to your work surface. If you need to, lift and re-powder your work surface.
