Fondant For Fun

So my friend Carole recently gave me a recipe for marshmallow fondant that I was dying to try. A couple of days ago I made the fondant and I was amazed at the ease in making it. I've tried to stay away from fondant simply because I didn't like using it, but I was amazed at how easy it was to make it. I decided to pull a little of it out today and just play around and see what I could do with it.

Of course the first thing I did was taste it :) Still not my favorite but such a major improvement over the store bought kind!!! Wow!!!

Next, I am attempting my hand at fondant bows. This is a picture of my strips with the ends glued together and turned on their sides to dry. After they have tried I will attempt to put it together and see what I come up with. More pictures on that to follow :)

After I made my bow loops I tried some different cutters I had to find the right one to fit a regular sized cupcake. I think they are cute with the scalloped edges. And of course then it was all about putting colors together and having fun :)
