I have been asked for this recipe so many times, that if I had a $1 for every request….I would be, well, not rich, but richer than I am now! So here is the easiest, tastiest fondant recipe around. I LOVE you Thermomix.
Clearly if you want pink fondant without the addition of any other coloring, just use the pink marshmallows which is what I did here. There are varying colours of course so knock yourself out, but I think that other food coloring will overcome the color of the marshmallows that you use as they are quite muted colors normally. The flavor is excellent, but I suggest you do not put this fondant in the fridge at all prior to using as it becomes quite sticky. It possibly is not as flexible for cake decorating as traditional fondant. (Not being a cake decorator, it could just be that I am not as flexible….note the lack of pics of this stuff, and certainly no decorated cakes will ever appear on here!)
