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.

This is a great fondant recipe that can be tinted with paste food colour if desired. Pour over the top of cakes or petit fours to make a perfectly smooth and glossy surface. Excess fondant can be stored, tightly covered, in refrigerator for weeks. Reheat to use again. Recipe may be doubled or tripled.

I've finally perfected the homemade rolled fondant recipe that requires no egg whites or marshmallows, and can be made with most things that the cake decorator will have in the kitchen! It came from the mixing together (after much experimentation and failure) of a few different recipes from cookery books around the house, but I owe the inspiration mostly to my grandmother's magazines from the 50s!

This pourable chocolate fondant icing is quick and simple to make. It's also delicious! To use, pour over ready made cakes for a perfectly smooth and glossy chocolatey finish. Any fondant left over can be transferred into tubberware and kept in the fridge for a few weeks.

Use this white fondant icing for a perfectly smooth finish on cakes or colour and shape for themed birthday cakes or cupcakes. Roll it out to 6mm thickness for best results. Glucose and glycerine can be found at specialty food shops or via the internet. You may colour it with three drops of whichever food colouring you desire.

This is a very easy way (even if it is a little sticky at times) to make a delicious fondant. It's great on cakes, biscuits and cookies, or just for your little ones to play with! Leftovers will keep for a few weeks if stored in an airtight container.

When I heard that white and pink marshmallows can be used to make a great icing for cakes, I couldn't believe it. So I tried, and it's really impressive.
