fondant
Anyone here ever worked with fondant on a cake or so?
I watched a few videos on how to make it and how to use it...
I decided for marshmallow fondant because everything else is usually with cornsyrup and there is no cornsyrup in Romania. Or at least I didn't find any.
Also glucose syrup is used often but I didn't find that either...

I'll try the marshmallow fondant this weekend... anyone experience with it?

RE: fondant
Hm k... tried fondant for the first time today.
Very messy thing, I am happy I used some parchment paper to cover the workplace.

Here is what I did:
Took some marshmallows and melted it in the pan.
Had to stir constantly and add a little water because it wanted to turn brown.
Put a mountain of icing sugar/powder sugar on the work space and make a hole in it.
Poured the melted hot marsmallow in that hole and started folding the icing sugar on top of it from the side. (had to butter my hands and it was still super sticky)
After a few folds it started to set a little and was less hot so I could start kneading.
At some point I had something like playdough
I rolled it out a lot bigger than the cake and after crumbcoating the cake I put the fondant on top and made it very nice and smooth, cut the excess from the bottom.
I had some more fondant that I colored with cocoa and used cooky cutters for the bears.

Here the result:
