Marshmallow- fondant and Jelly Fish cake part 1!

jelly fish cake

My Aunt Linda came to visit me after going to the Ices show

in Reno Nevada this year. Between her and my Grandma,

they have both been trying to get me interested in

applying my art skills to the craft of cake decorating.

After only 5 days of playing I AM HOOKED!


First, I am going to share the Marshmallow Fondant Recipe:


3tbs water

1 pkg. Marshmallows (I prefer mini)

1pkg. Powdered Sugar

Step 1: dump marshmallow in a glass bowl.

Step 2: Sprinkle 3 tbs. of cold water over marshmallows

Step3: place in microwave for 3o seconds then stir with

wooded spoon. Continue to repeat this step until marshmallows

are smooth.

Step 4: slowly add powdered sugar, stirring it in as you go.

When the mixture begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl,

and feels like it is ready to kneed place ball on plastic or

silicone matt continue to kneed in the rest of your powdered sugar:

See progression pictures below:

Now, spread Shortening over some plastic wrap and

wrap fondant in plastic wrap sealing out all air and

place in the fridge for 10-20 minutes to cool.





(fondant can stay this way in the  fridge for a week or more!)


Marshmallow Fondant tastes just like marshmallows. It is

way better eats than traditional fondant and is quite easy

to work with and very forgiving.

Stay tuned for part 2 explaining how we made

the Jelly fish and the coral it sits on!
