Using plain marshmallows, it takes just three ingredients to make a lovely fondant icing that works well on all of your cakes. You can add a little flavouring, such as vanilla extract, in place of some of the water.
You can add food colouring to create coloured fondant. Always remember to wear gloves to keep the colour off of your skin. This recipe is enough for two 23cm cakes.

Great recipe! Turned out really well. i made it a couple of days in advance, all it needed was 15 seconds in the micro and was easy to roll. only suggestion i have is when colouring your icing invest in gel colourings rather than the cheaper liquid colours as this changes the texture slightly. - 03 Oct 2013
