For all you skeptics/"I'm not good enough"/"I can't do it"/doubters out there, YOU CAN DO THIS! It is soooooooo easy. I'm VERY new to cake/cupcake baking/decorating (just started playing around for fun in Oct 08). I made this last night for a legal pad sheet cake (11X15, my very first sheet cake) and it was super easy. I melted the marshmallows and added the water and vanilla...then panicked because I couldn't get it smooth. No prob, just kept nuking at 30 sec intervals. AT THIS POINT, I ADDED GEL FOOD COLORING to get my desired color (soooo much easier than adding at the kneading stage like I did the other time!). I added as much 10X sugar as I could w/a spoon, then turned it onto my HEAVILY GREASED (I use Crisco) counter to knead the rest in. I am impatient, so I attempted to roll it out and use it the same night I made it. Didn't work (however, it would have worked if I'd been using it for cut outs/decorations, just not for covering an entire cake). I put it back in a ball, rubbed some more shortening on it, then wrapped it in plastic wrap and put it in the frig til morning. After letting it warm, I rolled it on a cutting board sprinkled w/corn starch and had no problem getting it on the cake (I simply inverted the cutting board over the cake!). I want to also add that it was INCREDIBLY HUMID when I made this and it STILL worked super well. I'm telling you, give this a try; people will think you are a baking ROCK STAR for very minimal effort! TY for post
