Do you like it? I keep thinking you can use almond paste instead of fondant but I haven't worked with fondant much so can't tell. Seems the same sort of texture (maybe a little thicker).

P.S. I love how it looks just not the biggest fan of how it tastes.

I like decorating with it, but I can't stand the taste of the Wilton brand fondant. I have actually been making my own fondant, and it tastes much better.

I add Vanilla extract, but that's about it. I'll attach the link with the recipe for you. When your getting ready to melt the marshmallows, put in about 2-3 spoonfuls of crisco, and melt it with the marshmallows. This will help when you are kneading your fondant. If you have a kitchen-aid mixer, you can basically skip the kneading on the counter, and just knead with the dough hook attachment. Make sure you sift your powdered sugar, too!

In my country when we talk of fondant, it is usually meant in reference to Chocolate Fondant (from French fondant au chocolat) - a very lightly baked chocolate cake witch is runny in the middle.

I didn't know the word had another meaning as well, when it comes to cakes. I guess I learned something today too :smile:

I'm with kitsunegrl - I way prefer ganache and will often do a white chocolate ganache if I want the look of fondant. I like the taste of almond paste, but don't know if you could get the smooth look of fondant with it.
