How to Make Marshmallow Fondant

As promised, here is an instructional video for making your own fondant. It is so easy to do and I certainly did not come up with this idea on my own. I googled it years ago.

Things you should know:
  • Sophie filmed this in real time
  • I have no editing capabilities so this is straight from camera
  • Several times she got tired of holding the camera - look for those moments
  • You can hear Calvin in the background despite the fact that I asked for 2 minutes of quiet
  • Try not to notice that I get more "cleavagey" as the video progresses
  • I did not have a wardrobe person to tell me to wear a different shirt
  • I do not like how I look on film - specifically those extra 20 pounds I could stand to lose
Oh well, it is what it is and I hope you find it useful!


  1. Stac, Whatever... You look so good! I love this video. It tells me you need to make more cooking, teaching videos. You are so good at this. And tell Sophie she REALLY did do a great job!

  2. Okay, now show us how to put it onto a cake. And I'll just say it now, that the 3rd video should be of you decorating that cake. You should have your own show.!!!

  3. That was so great! I do need the video to really get it. You know your readers well. I second Katherine. You should have a podcast. That would be so fun.

  4. I loved it! That was really informative. I second Katherine do you put it on the cake? Great job, Sophie!

  5. Thanks Stacey! I needed the video to really grasp it as well but I think I'm going to try it. Soon, since my hubby's birthday is coming up!
