Roughly 8 mins. later, you have this play-doh ball of fondant to use on a cake. It helps for it to sit overnight and relax and absorb any leftover sugar. Tomorrow, we'll see if I accomplished cake fondant for my birthday cake.

Very, very interesting. I always wondered how they made that stuff. (I like to watch Ace of Cakes and see a lot of it!) I don't like the idea of it near as much as homemade icing, but I guess you can do wonders with it as far as decorating goes. Good luck! Can't wait to see the finished product!!

It definitely takes decorating to another plane. You can do some really cool stuff with it but I won't be doing it on a regular basis. Just getting out of my comfort zone once in a while. Who knows? I might find it fun (right....). :)

Like anything else--the more you practice, the better you get at it. Let's hope this is the same!

Uh...never...I loathe that guy. I'd give all my baking supplies away first. LOL

Yes, he is a little over the top but he and his staff turn out some very interesting cakes. They certainly do go through an awful lot of fondant!

I saw a YouTube or some other video the other night when I was surfing for info and the woman picked up a plastic container that looked like it was a 50# vat of the stuff! I'm sure the bakeries that use it for wedding cakes and most of their other party cakes go through it like I do flour. LOL

Colette is one of them. That woman must go through 50# a week minimum if not more! She does a lot of those competitions on FoodTV and her stuff is awesome and very unique but I've seen her roll that stuff out. She probably uses 5# or more on each layer. :)

Oh I have to steal that idea. What is the recipe? I bet marshmallow tastes WAY better than regular fondant! I'm excited to know how this turns out.

It certainly tastes better than the commercial stuff I've tried. We'll see if it works like fondant tomorrow.
