Marshmallow Fondant Cake
For my son’s birthday I had this plan of making a Captain America cake. Then I saw something on Pinterest about making your own marshmallow fondant. I had never made it or even worked with it before but I figured it would be a good chance to see if I would like it.
I decided to just make my cake from a box because it is easier…even though I feel like I am cheating a bit 😉
I was going to go with a white and pink inside. So that is how I did the layers.
After the cake was done and cooled I put some homemade icing on it. I got that recipe at Recipe Girl.
I then needed to make the fondant. I decided to keep it white for the main part of the cake because I had never worked with it before. I went with this marshmallow recipe from How Does She. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. After about 10 minutes I was able to roll it out and then put it over the cake.
I then was going to get started on making it Captain America like but I couldn’t make a star. I have so many cookie cutters and not one star! So after a few failed attempts, Josh brought me an airplane cookie cutter and we decided to change the theme.
I made a few mistakes and ran out of the blue icing that I made for the trim but I think it was a success. I think my letters are too thick. It’s funny because I got those cookie cutters for our wedding and it was the first time I had ever used them 🙂
My little boy turned four and we had some yummy cake! Drew is asking for a Skylanders cake. We will see what I can come up with for his birthday next month 🙂
Have you ever worked with marshmallow fondant before?
