Step #1 Gather Tools and Preparation
Gather your fondant making tools; Microwave oven 16 oz mini marshmallows Vegetable shortening Smooth clean work surface Wooden spoon And a microwave safe bowl 1/4 cup of water In this example we are making unflavored non-colored marshmallow fondant. Over 100 color powders are available on line. Let’s get started! Pour marshmallows in microwave safe bowl.   Add 1/4 cup of water to marshmallows. Microwave for one minute and forty seconds.
Step #2 Add Sugar and Stir
Apply vegetable shortening to spoon. Stir melted marshmallows till dissolved. Add approx 1/3 of a 2 lbs bag of 10x powdered sugar. Stir till dissolved.
Step #3 Add More Sugar and Stir
Add another approx. 1/3 bag powdered sugar. This will leave you with about 1/3 bag of powdered sugar. Stir till dissolved. Add approx. 1/2 of remaining powdered sugar leaving around 2 cups in bag. Stir till dissolved.
Step #4 Folding
Pour remaining powdered sugar (approx. 2 cups) on to work surface. Pour contents on to powdered sugar bed. Apply vegetable shortening to hands. Fold powdered sugar in to fondant.
Step #5 Kneading
Continue folding till all powdered sugar is dissolved. This should take about two minutes. Transition from folding to kneading. Knead till fondant is stretchy and not sticky.
Step #6 Store and Cure
Apply shortening to finished fondant. This will keep it from sticking to your bag or sealed container. Place marshmallow fondant in sealed container or bag at room temp. for 24 hours to cure/set up. Knead again before using. You now have great tasting marshmallow fondant!
